Hello Gardeners.
Embarassed I need your help again. I have no transport to travel to different garden centers so does anyone know of a mail order service where I could get something to clear green water from my 3 month old pond and some good plants : Thank you.

You are right . The garden centers close to me have little choice in their plants.They all seem to stock the same things. I have been using Bakkers but they have no pond section . Thank you for your reply. Laughing

I take it your local garden centres don't have an ordering service?, it may not be promoted but you should drop in a list of the plants you are looking for and let them source them for you.

Try a search in google.ie for water features and you will find a supplier in Ireland who sells on line.
sorry not to be more specific but the forum rules dont allow me to post website.

Have you tried Barley Straw? For a few Euro ask one of your local farmers to sell you a bale and you can take enough off to suit your pond size. Bundle it tight with string and place in your pond.
Barley straw, when decomposing produces a compound which prevents Algae cells being produced. It won't kill off existing Algae, but they aren't replaced when they die off.
Don't use fresh Barley hay or barley, but dried Barley Straw as the others produce nitrogen and phosphorous which actually promotes Algae growth.
Perhaps you know a farmer that could drop one off for youy. Place it in early in the year before the algae gets hold. Harmless to fish and eco-friendly.
Bill.
