Pond Newst

Posted: 16/06/2017 at 11:22

I have just changed the water in my pond and added some new plants yesterday

I noticed a newt today at the surface

? Do they need to be able to exit the pond during the day or night

The liner is black plastic and is steep where I have fixed it in place so I am not sure how they would get out

I have made a ramp of bricks in case I get a toad as they cant "hop it " like frogs

It says that they feed on worms and others which obviously arent in a pond

Help please friends

Contact them right now for the sake of the precious bees and obviously yourself

You cant leave them for 12 weeks 

They are not a pest but as you know and appreciate very necessary to provide us with pollinated plants for us to receive our food

Good luck

mint invasive?

? Do you eat mint or just like growing it

They are best in a pot outside the kitchen so you can pick regularly or in an isolated small area where you can keep an eye on its attempt to take over your soil

It will pop up every where

Good luck

On the last program the newby was building a pond and dropped in some blue dye but I did not catch what it was called

I have just taken 99% of the water and algae out of my pond and replaced a frog and some newts and I want to get the water as clear as possible

I appreciate that the "stuff" in suspension will sink in due course

? Can anyone help please
