Hi Jack, a large proportion of ponds get filled from the tap.
I think your idea re green water is correct
Hi patzz, good here thanks,
I think they could be made use of here
Have you got a list of possibilities for the shrubs Mrs Garden?
Any deutzia around
I would expect action very soon. My hawthorn are all leafed up and some in flower. Don't let the soil get dry but don't over water. I find watering in and a mulch is the best way to go
I did think phlox when I first looked at it but I don't grow them and wasn't sure. But if the choice is salvia or phlox. It's phlox
That rather yellow one on the right could be Verbena bonariensis. Did you have some of that?
I think they're invasive if they like your soil.
I've had them in pots, when I opened the garden I used to sell plants. They fill the pots extremely quickly and unless you keep potting on are pot bound by flowering time
I think that triangular leaf shape makes it a sedge. From the size, possibly pendu;ous sedge, Carex pendula. Attractive but seeds around a lot and takes up a lot of room
I use it fresh or mature as a mulch around new plantings. I find the moisture loss prevention outweighs any loss in nutrients.
