    Thanks :lol: yes of course I’ve been eyeing out spots in the garden. But then I’d be quite keen to do a 100% indigenous setup to attract more birds and other wildlife, where frogs and dragonflies can breed to their heart’s content etc. And there’s not much suitable space for anything big.

    Won’t happen soon though. But it’s been good to experiment on a small scale and I’m enjoying the pond, very low maintenance. Just constantly pulling plants. Not that it shows :lol:

    Yep.
    I checked temp first thing this morning 12C, and just now 20.8C.
    I expect them to overwinter well but will probably pull some more for the upcoming river tank. I also have about 30 in total inside already.

    The pond is looking good, the white clouds you gave me seem to breeding like guppies :)

    Was very happy to spot these indigenous bulbs at the plant nursery, have been keeping my eyes peeled for them. Will plant 4 in the pond and one in the indoor plant tub, I think.
