gravel for a belfast sink pond?

You could use pea gravel, wash it first. There is no need to put anything in the bottom though. Just get some aquatic compost and put some pond plants in.

New here. 😊

The carrots will be ready to eat in late summer to Autumn.

There is no poing in leaving that growth on them, it will not green up again, those leaves will drop off leaving bare stalks, chop them right back as Dove says, they will make lots of growth this coming year.

Solar powered water feature

Posted: 16/04/2015 at 19:29

The other day I was browsing in our local GC at the solar fountains but they all seemed to be plugged in to the mains, just for show, the water in the  ones not plugged in were just about tiddling out, some not at all. I am not convinced how well they work under solar power alone.

I have never found those lamps to be much good either. Anyone got any solar powered items? 

Someone said, on another thread that those pond solar powered pumps are useless.
