Wildlife pond design

I have just done exactly the same, I think you are really on the right track. 

The hardest part is getting the hole absolutely level, or you will see the liner on one side. A long piece of wood with the spirit level is the way to go. I hope you can post some piccys of the progress, we are all interested in wildlife ponds.

HELLO FORKERS!

My grandad came back too, with an ulcerated leg, but alive, he died in 1959.

My grandson helped plant a whole field of poppies at the Heligan gardens, I never got to seeing then, but they were lovely according to grandson.

I have just had to buy a new mobile phone, hope I can set it up, will wait for clever daughter to come tomorrow.

Its ok Bekkie, theres a never ending supply of seeds here! you know how it is.

Lovely post there Arty,

Your garden sounds lovely, perhaps some photo's later?

My wallflowers had been in a couple of years and gone a bit leggy so I did cuttings, they are ready to go out now, I have acid soil, which they dont like so I make a can of limey water for them.

I cant grow Lavender here, its too damp and windy, cold as well but I do love it, I buy the odd pot in Morrisons just for the season, the bees love it.

The whole gardening thing is very therapeutic, as you say, teaches patience  care and love.

I have sent you a PM about the plants.Thanks you.

Soil type?

I love the his and hers kneeling pads.

What did you have in mind to grow in there Jordan, maybe just a sprinkling of Bone meal, or I use chicken pellets, may do the trick, you can buy a soil test kit from GC or Amazon, that will tell you if its acid or alkaline. Then you can buy plants accordingly.

No! Get it stuffed and eat it! Did it come off easily or did you help it?

Ok Justin, if you send me your address in a Private Message, you can do that by clicking on your name at the top.

Is there any wood that would harm your wildlife?
