Can you paint a silver aluminum greenhouse - green?

Chances are, it will in time just flake off and look unsightly. Nope, too much hardwork now, and in the future.

Short and selective memories springs to mind. 

....and yet again a very non subject with only one objective - disharmony. No more contributions on this subject from me. Cheers

What can I plant next to a pond?

Just re-read what you wrote - "Need advice on plants to put at the side of a pond that you can walk on"

The last pond I dug out was edged with a combination of natural planting to soften/ hide the back/sides of the liner and big rocks. But because the pond was cut into the lawn, I saved some of the strips and used these to edge the front. Therefore, I was able to walk right up to the front and used this area for easy access, when, for example - maintenance was required.

I didn't want to use any kind of hard material like slabs which would spoil the natural look.

Not sure if this helps.

Grasses look nice by ponds, the evergreen type. Ferns and hostas too, if one side is shaded.

Irises look great.

Cucumbers are prone to mildew - spraying the affected area, at the first sight of it with milk and water puts this in check.

One of the best organic tips I've ever found online.
