JUST a toad/frog pond ??
I usually hang out over on the hosta forum but have a question you all may be able to answer. Recently a poster mentioned he had a huge toad that had been hanging around in the garden eating the slugs that totally mess up the hostas.
Cool! I want to encourage such a cool and organic way to get rid of these pests sooooo ...
What do I need to do to make my garden inviting to toads? Can I set up a small "pond" amongst my hostas? I realize I probably can't have just standing water, but would a small one with a small pump shaded by hostas and my other shade plants invite them in? What else might I need?
I realize that they are not necessarily going to STAY in my garden; but if I have made it inviting, they might come back often.
