Chris, your pond looks so health, do you have any tips for us.

Hi Ams. I think the water lilies help a lot. The main thing is to have a lot of the pond shaded for much of the day. In do have to fish out blanket weed every few weeks in the summer. Sunlight encourages the weed and I suspect our hot weather does too. I don't keep fish because we are often away. All wildlife are welcome though.

Thanks Chris, I recently bought a small water feature just to experiment with aquatic plants, oxygenating and marginal plus water hyacinth. I still get algae even though there is hardly any free space. Yesterday I found a big frog has moved in, I love frogs.

Very lovely and natural looking - l like the way you have grass right down to the water's edge.

Hi Chris,

I am a journalist with a publication Inshore Ireland and Castel Espie one of the Wildlife and Wetlands Trust centres over here have written a piece for us on how to build a pond....can we possibly use your photo??? If so can you send it to me in a jpeg format. I will send you a copy of the piece when it is published and we will put your name to the photo?

Please advise ASAP
