The pond is still under construction but we are about ready to lay the liner and fill it up. I can't wait to get on with the planting, its a wildlife pond and I only want to grow native plants. I've already got Purple Loosestrife, Comfrey and a common Bistort to plant on the sides. Lady's Smock appeals as does Marsh Marigold and Ragged Robin. I've got other plants in mind and am hoping I have enough room for all that I want to grow!!
'How to make a Wildlife Garden' by Chris Baines and 'Gardening with Wild Plants' by Julian Slatcher, have been essential reading in creating our pond, I would definitely recommend the books to anyone interested in making a wildlife pond.

Pond is now completed and planted up, probably overplanted but no problem as my brother will benefit when he eventually builds his
The day after we completed, we had a little visitor, amazing!!

Lovely to get a visitor so quickly, SweetCicely, it's amazing how a frog can find a pond, where there wasn't one before.
