thats great holly, i love them and dont get to many slugs so ok, wonder if its cause i have a toad and frog come in my garden.

4 May, 2010

 

I have to have hostas in pots and then i put vasline round the top of pots so slugs and snails can't get to them as they can't get a grip and slide on the vasline.

good idea carol, will remember that is i suddenly get slugs and snails,

4 May, 2010

 

Oh yes, yours are definitely ahead of mine, mine are only just peeking up above the soil yet.

4 May, 2010

 

And mine. You need to protect them from slugs and snails. ;o)

they seem to just suddenly shoot up this week karen, Tog i could count the snails on one hand last year, i didnt get many maybe because of the toads and frogs around here, not sure ;o)

4 May, 2010

 

Oh, for sure, froggies and toadies are goodies!!

5 May, 2010

 

Lucky you I just can't grow them :0(

5 May, 2010

 

what a shame sue, have you tried them in pots, they are lovely plants ;o)

5 May, 2010

 

With a bit of luck you should have more frogs and toads now with your new pond Sandra.. and even less slugs than last year ;-)

5 May, 2010

 

hope so richard, im surprised ive not seen my froggy yet or the toad, but there`s time, especially when young ones appear ;o))

5 May, 2010

 

I saw the first frog in my new pond yesterday Sandra. Our neighbour has recently filled in her pond so I hope he brings his froggy pals here with him :-)

5 May, 2010

 

thats great richard, i havent seen any yet this year and normally have a few, just my luck now i have a pond hahah

6 May, 2010

 

Will you be getting any fish in your pond Sandra?

6 May, 2010

 

im thinking of a couple of goldfish as its not that deep but clarice said they will be fine, ive seen her pond and its about the same depth as mine, so we are going to get some when im back from holidays ;o))

6 May, 2010

 

That will give a bit of extra interest for you Sandra having a few goldfish. I can only have a few sticklebacks in mine ...lol :-)

6 May, 2010

 

lol richard, i get herons flying over so may not last long, will see ;o))

6 May, 2010

 

OOO you'll have to put a 'no landing' sign in your garden for them Sandra :-)

6 May, 2010

 

yes good thinking richard lol

6 May, 2010

 

If you want frogs in your pond get some frogsporn and they will stay forever.LOL

7 May, 2010

 

thanx shinobi i will see what happens naturally first, i was told not to get frogspwn out of another pond cause he can cause disease, can you actually buy it from pond places when its the season ;o)

7 May, 2010

 

Hi Sanbaz & all.....my mother bought three Hosta almost identical to yours above for me thirteen years ago, I have them in the biggest Planters I can now as they are huge I will try and get photos of them....and load them....I also grease the tops of the Planters to stop the slugs and snails from getting at them.....

Just a little sad note, when I see the ponds, and how much pleasure they give everyone who has one...when we moved house and downsized, sadly we could not bring our fish with us, and now we haven't really the room, I have two Dalmation fish in the house tho to make up for it lol....

10 May, 2010

 

My daughter is getting some frogspawn from a friends pond today -I thought that I would try it Sandra. :-)
Shinobi -thanks for the idea :-)

10 May, 2010

 

i was going to do that but was told not to get it from another pond as can infect your pond if anything bad in other pond richard, but im not sure its just what i was told, havent read anything about it, so good luck with that one, ;o)

10 May, 2010

 

oops sorry crissue missed you there rushing as usual lol, sorry you had to leave your fish and couldnt have them at new place , nice you have a couple of nice ones in the house with you though ;o))
look forward to seeing your hosta in pots to.

My 'ponds' are only small Sandra -made from a washing up bowl and mop bucket if you remember......lol, so if anything goes wrong I can clean them out quite easily. I will put a new pic on my page. It would be more difficult for your large pond so I don't blame you for not trying it. I will let you know how I get on anyway. There has been a frog in there so the 'ponds' should be OK I have filled them with rain water :-)

10 May, 2010

 

hi sanbaz I had my frogsporn from frogs visiting my pond, but I know loads of people who have had frogsporn off different people and had no problems. If you think about it where has the frog been that has visited your pond probably in someone elses, then someone elses?

10 May, 2010

 

yes i remember richard and alot easy your right, look forward to future pics ;o)
guess your right shinobi, thanx ;o)
