Pond improvements

Posted: 27/03/2014 at 18:35

If it's been exposed all that time look carefully to see if it's degraded. Getting that covered with turf, paving, stones, pebbles or a mixture is a priority. Don't rely on pond plants doing that

What does a pond need for a good ecosystem

Dividing depends on having more than one stem coming out of the ground. If there's only one you can't. If there's more than one it's worth a try. The down side would be some rather odd shaped bushes

I sawed a weigla in half a couple of years ago. Bought one with 2 distinctly separate stems, pruning saw down the middle. 2 plants.

Take off any large leaves Swedboy, if they're wilting they won't survive and it's more work for the roots to do.

Moving peony

I'd be happy to move them as long as the shoots were still small. Once there are stems long enough to flop I wouldn't
