Pond calendar

July

During this high summer month plants will grow optimally and water lilies are in full bloom. Regularly cut finished water lilies away. This will be for the benefit of flowering. Also prune other pond plants and keep some open water. You can put these plants next to the pond for a while so insects can find their way back to the pond. Read more
