Advice about the pond

Posted: 12/10/2014 at 15:24

Thanks for all your advice re:the Algae in my pond, I would now like to ask some advice regarding covering the pond over the coming months.

I have been advised to cover it with netting to reduce the build up of leaves etc..

Is it enough to get fine netting and cut out holes where the current plants are?

Many thanks again

The second image was awaken on 24th September 14 when I made a start at painting the fence and the other one this morning !!

Please help as I would hate to lose it…

The cable at the base is not connected to anything - I am arranging to have some lights in the garden.

 

Many thanks

Dry Australian Tree Fern?

I have had a tree fern in the garden for at least six years-  without any problems at all, it is usually glorious.

However, this morning the fronds look as though they have been burnt. The new growth is brown although the stems coming out of the top of the plant are strong and green.

Is this just due to the unusually warm weather we are having?

I have now doused it with water, but it is looking very sorry for itself !!

Any suggestions please?

Clear pond please !!

I have recently had a natural pond created in my garden, which has some lovely plants in it, which are now flowering and look tremendous.

Over the week or so Ive noticed that  what I can only describe as green slime floating in the pond around the plants and on the bottom of the pond.

I have started to remove it with a fishing net, is this correct and is there some product I can buy to keep the pond clear or is it best just to get some more oxygenated plants to assist?

Many thanks
