    I had a lot of work on this year to rejuvenate my pond as it got covered in duckweed which killed all the oxygenating plants.Also a lot of leaves had got in it.I fished out as much of the leaves as I could,take a lot of duckweed off every week and got a solar oxygenator.The pond is looking much better now,although I still need more floating plants.We got frogspawn from a puddle that was drying up when we were out hiking earlier in the year and now have froglets all over the garden.All the duckweed,leaves etc I've put in the compost bins.

    Thanks for all the replies, some good tips there. I think I need to get more plants in there. I have a small solar pump, so that will hopefully help too.
