How to make a Wildlife Pond:-
1. Collect expert reference books on the subject and throw them all in the bin
2. Gather as many pairs of used ladies tights as are decently available
3. Find yourself a Mrs Hilary Reid
4. Start digging!
Mrs Reid decided to create a Wildlife Pond in memory of her late husband, and finding the available information impractical, and no designs that were to her liking, she set about designing and creating a pond for herself that would attract as much wildlife into her small garden as possible.
The result is a beautiful haven for a variety of plants and animals both aquatic and land based. She gave us a brilliant talk that described the problems as well as the successes. And what creative features were the tights for? Well, you’ll just have to ask someone from the Gardening Club about those.
