• If barley straw bales or pads were used to reduce algae during the summer months, these can now be removed and added to the compost heap. Let them sit by the edge of the pond for 24 hours before composting, so that pond insects can find their way back into the water.
  • Cut back overhanging foilage to stop it falling into the water. This will prevent leaves rotting and smelling in the water and reducing the quality of the water.
  • Rake out fallen leaves or shake off those that have gathered on protective netting.
  • Use Pond Net to prevent hungry herons depleting your fish stocks.
