Stocking the Garden Pool - A Guide to the Selection and Establishment of Plants and Fish for the Garden Pool

Length: 49 pages27 minutes


This is the fourth instalment of the "Ditchfield's Little Wonder Book" series, "Stocking the Garden Pond". It deals chiefly with adding, fostering, and maintaining aquatic life in a garden pond, with helpful advice and diagrams throughout. This handy volume will be of utility to existing and prospective pond owners alike, and it would make for a great addition to collections of gardening literature. Contents include: "Introduction", "Plant Pockets", "Preparing the Compost", "True Aquatic Plants", "Surfacing Plants", "Marginal Bog Plants", "Floating Plants", "Indigenous Fish", "Cultivated Varieties", "Feeding Pond Fish", "Breeding Gold Fish", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction.
