I want to set up a half barrel pond. How do I go about it and I need step by step instructions
This site http://www.puddleplants.co.uk/Barrel/ has lists of plants suitable for half-barrels.
Thanks for the link but I am afraid that I would have no idea how to set this up. Would there be instructions do you think?
Have a look here http://www.gardenersworld.com/how-to/projects/creative-projects/how-to-make-a-mini-pond/251.html
Hope that helps
Oh thanks for that. Looks like I am a bit late to do it this year though
Oh never thought of that Julie!! Thanks
As promised. The marginals have just about finished flowering and I'm hoping the children allow the lily to flower.
It's worth mentioning that insects, birds and other creatures may want to visit and use the water, so if you can put a few bricks (or similar) stacked at one side so that they can perch to drink safely that will be appreciated by them. It will give the pond more appeal for you as well watching them visit.
