What to do in the Water Garden in October

Net Covering

As Halloween draws near and the Trees are beginning to show their magnificent autumn colors we are often asked by many water gardeners, “What do I do now?”   Begin by checking the pond water quality, check ammonia, check Ph and then look around and see what trees are going to drop those leaves right into the water.  Remove any rotted leaves from the water plants. Now cover the pond with a light weight net to stop all of that debris from falling into the water causing winter water mess.  Now, it’s time to relax until all of the leaves are gone from the trees. Keep feeding the fish as long as they seem to be hungry, but begin to cut down on the amount of food that you give them.
