Hmm. Not sure I know what I'm talking about so won't risk any suggestions.


Blue rose help!

Your dad is right. Your should be able to see where the graft is at the base of the plant, anything growing from below that is a wild rose sucker. Anything above is your rose.

Dye to prevent duckweed and algae

Small ponds do get warm which encourages algae. Some shade from the full heat of the day helps. You often hear that ponds should be sited in full sun but I think that's so the water lilies flower well. There are many statements like that in gardening that are passed on (and on) without understanding of the reasons.

I would never put chemical junk in a pond. It's like prescribed drugs, they might work but always side effects.


I had ramshorn snails for years but never see them now, no idea why

I haven't seen one yet, can't remember if the last I saw was last year or the year before. It's a very 'poison-heavy' agricultural area and it must be in the food chain

Plant ID please!

Cephalaria a strong contender. I don't think it's an umbellifer

different scale to Red Dragon though, tiny by comparison. I lost it, I think it has higher moisture needs than Red Dragon
