Pond not going swimmingly...

You need something   to aerate the water . A small fountain  or you can buy a air pump and air stone quite cheaply. Just water in a bucket with no movement will just go stagnant

I leave some dried grass from my clearing up on my bird table and balls of dog hair. It was a nice day so they also had a brush. The birds love it for the nests. I cleaned by bird houses out at Xmas and they had lovely furry nests!

Been out in the garden all day..its cold but bright here in South Wales.  Finished all the pruning today, roses, grasses, honeysuckle, clematis all the normal stuff for this time of year. Greenhouse is overflowing, had to order some more staging today as my windowsills are also full. Sweet peas and geraniums are looking fab. The hubby has been finishing the second pond. He looked frozen stood in shorts in the water.....

Still don't know wet her to put my sea holly seedings back in the fridge as the packet states. Anybody know if I should. Loads have germinated
