Cover Planting for Frogs on My Allotment

NewBoy2NewBoy2 BristolPosts: 1,804
I have an area of 7 foot x 2 foot of open ground on my allotment between the pond and the hedge rows where frogs can be safe during the daytime.

I have found some just in the longer grass.

What plants / shrubs can I plant that will produce thick cover about 6 inches tall.

In my home garden last week there were 3 dead frogs on the lawn one morning and another one next day.

Not eaten just killed...........but thats another discussion.

Yes I know its Nature but........

Everyone is just trying to be Happy.....So lets help Them.

    Killed or died? Are there not some nasty frog killing diseases around or am I out of date?

    Good point Debs64

    There is now a mountain of frogs spawn in the pond so it may not be that disease called Red something.

    In our allotment pond which is 30 yards by 20 yards hardly any frogs.

    I think they like to get under rocks in damp areas so, some largish rocks with space under and some dense planting around the area?
