Warm Weather and Water Gardening

Like the rest of you, we get anxious and eager to get in our ponds when March plays tricks and throws 8 days of warm sunny weather at us.

But beware! Please do not feed your fish!

They may seem more active but the pond water is still not warm enough to feed them fish pellets.
Your pond thermometer need to read above 50 degrees and maintain that at night.

Go ahead and remove pond netting if you haven't already, skim any debris off the top, make sure your pump and filters are ready to go.

Hold off on a water exchange or deep cleaning.

March is just teasing......

12 days till we open for the Spring 2010 season!
