Plant IDs and advice please.

If you don't like it dump it. That's my new rule for this year

What about physical damage darren? We had great diving beetle larvae in their hundreds one year and they attacked a couple of small fish, would that have done it?

I can't remember all the details now, it's best part of 30 years ago. I only do wildlife ponds in my current garden.

Plant IDs and advice please.

The one under the forsythia is a flowering currant, Ribes sanguneum. If you like it move it out from there. It would be most likely to survive if done in the dormant season.

The variegated one isn't privet, they have white flowers later. I think it's a euonymus but don't know which one.

I did have a bent fish in a previous pond, it was an orfe, I was going to say self-seeded, but whatever the fish equivalent is. It seemed to manage life OK but looked rather odd.

I thought so Jo but forums aren't for everyone

We're just people Maxine, like you. We're not a panel of experts employed to answer questions. We discuss and give opinions. Sometimes people fall out and get quite worked up, But it's just a forum made up of anyone who wants to join.

The folding fish comment was a joke for Darren and fish were around in ponds before filters, Sorry if I caused offense

Should I worry about these bugs ?

The 2nd is a chysalis of a butterfly, are you sure you want to get rid of it?

Top one might be a leather jacket, can't I estimate the size, you can squash that if it is, someone will tell you for sure

Forum search

You can start from search this site at the top of the page. but if you want to ask a question I'd start a new thread. Reviving old threads leads to confusion with some people answering your question and some answering the original question

Organic weedkiller?

The other thing to remember is that organic doesn't necessarily mean harmless or wildlife friendly.
