pond weed

Posted: 23/08/2012 at 17:37

Does anyone know if there is a product you can buy to stop growth of surface pond weed, (algae?) rather than lifting it out every few days with a net.  It's only a small pond filled with tap water.  Will it kill the fish?

Thanks for your comments.  I'll try one of the seed catalogues such as Thmpson and Morgan.

Are there any good varieties of dwarf sunflowers to be grown from seed?  I planted some of the tall ones but they are too tall.  Some fell down in the wind and snapped, some were attacked by squirrels or slugs (flower head eaten off), onlly a few survived.

Anone any experience with smaller bushier varities?

Thankd Lavande,  I'll keep all that in mind.  At the moment I have them sheltering behind a wooden fence, fingers crossed!

Thank you dovefromabove.  The oleanders are small ones and look quite healthy at the moment, hope they will flower in the summer.  It was said in the newspaper advert I bought them from they would be okay to -5 C.

Anyone know what to feed olive trees and oleanders in pots (to stop them getting too big and lack of space)?  What about watering?

Averil 2  I also have some  dwarf oleanders, the advertising said they thrive on heat and drought but I wonder what you feed them with and how often to water.

Hi there,

Can daffodils be dead headed after flowering or is it best to leave them the standard to months until they die back naturally?  Is it the same for tulips?

Does any one out there know if the 'giant tree lilies' and giant dahlias advertized in all the catalogues really do grow as big as they say they do?  Do they need extra special care?
