Durham/Cumbria Border, UK., United Kingdom
Just by chance I found this intriguing site whilst trying to find the name of one of our garden plants as a neighbour would like one!
I've just been looking at your POND section, especially Jacque's pond as we have a similar size and style pond in our garden. We moved house recently. This pond is VERY overgrown and runs dries up. We're thinking this could be because some of the overgrown plants have been pulled out and caused holes in the membrane. Sorry to sound so stupid but have never had dealings with a pond before! To be honest we're in the process of removing the pond, very reluctantly. I got the idea from Jacque's comments that the plants are put into the pond in pots - is this right? In that case they can't really take over the pond can they?! So we could re-do our lovely pond properly.
Sorry this is a garbled, but it was just a quickie off the cuff sort of thing before I forget!
