Our wee wildlife pond is close to, ( 1 metre ) off a patch of holly hedge, is about 3 sq. m in area. I put some mud and grunge into it from a proper wild pond, with some weed, and this was some 5 years ago. I have a resident population of 6 good frogs, who wish me 'bon jour' every day in the spawning season. It has virtually no attention but for desultory clearing of the worst of the weed during the year. I lined the hole with some spare pond liner that the gardening centre didn't bother to charge me for, bless 'em, and it slakes the thirst of our honey bees, wasps, butterflies, hedgehogs, da boidies, and gives us a spiritual re-charging of batteries. We love our time oop t'lotty, and it's worth every penny we spend on it, in it.
