Go Carefully

Whilst digging a trug of bark chip to mulch a freshly planted tree, I discovered and nearly decapitated this little fellow.

Frogs and toads love warm humid places and a covered mulch container is just perfect.
In order to attract our little amphibian friends they like

  • Ponds with shallow edges or logs and rocks to break up a steep edge.
  • Native planting within the pond to offer shade and a home for them to lay their frogspawn
  • An area of leaf mulch or soft soil to hibernate in.

In return, they will eat mosquitoes and their larvae, slugs, snails and flies, which suit me just fine!

I have a client who wants a pond within her vegetable garden so watch this space for photos and updates.
