The Garden Community for Garden Lovers



Thought the animal lovers would like to see my other passtime. These Koi take up another chunk of my time. The pond holds 5000 gals and is 27ft long x10ft wide, it has to be covered by green netting to keep the sun of it, to help all the other bits peices attached to the pond to keep it clean. The bit of pond nearest to the house is uncovered. It gets covered when the leaves in the woods at the back of the house are due to fall. It,s a mess if I am too late.

Hello irish
Idon't realy know how many I have, because I have another smaller pond behind that one. It only holds 1000 gals 8x6 and they are a lot smaller inthat pond, some will be moved next spring into the larger pond and there is also goldfish in there.
Yes Bob I just stand there and watch them for along time, they realy can relax you when you need it.
Hi Linclass Although I would like a bigger garden. I don't think I could mannage it, Pots and containers are just about my limmit, moving them are sometimes a little tricky. Help is usually required This is the reason why I have used most of my garden to keep koi.My refound interest in gardening does want me to rethink about my ponds.
Thanks all of you Frank
