    It worries me if a hedgehog falls in,I piled some large stones up at the side of my little water feature next to this plant in the photo. Frogs need something too they can’t jump out of water & would be stuck in there unable to climb out. We had a newt & toads over the years,that’s a plastic duck incase it looks real in the photo that pot does pour water out of it I just never plug it in,it makes a little humming sort of noise,I can’t remember but if there’s moving water you can put some of the barley straw in some old pair of tights to sink in the water,to help against pond weed,our cat likes drinking out of it even though there’s two cat bowls of fresh water daily on the patio,I find that really strange he must like the taste of plant -

      The wildlife pond is maturing nicely
      If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

          Thanks, I planted the ragged robin and forget me nots along with water mint and the plants in pots under water, quite a few other plants seem to be finding their way in and we have water boatmen, diving beetles, pond skaters and damsel fly larvae living in there too. We had a frog visit , but that has gone, hopefully we might get some tadpoles next year, need to keep the slug numbers down lol.
