ok sorry for the alliteration. Anyway I feel like I spend a good amount of money on plants and I'm not getting my moneys worth. The lilly I have has no blooms, doesnt seem to be growing and doesnt cover much surface area. The Cattail I have is nice but I guess I should have gotten something that blooms. I bought some other plant that looks like a douglas fir branch thats slowley invading the whole pond and looks like hell.
Everyone here who posts pics has great plants that cover the pond and make the fish safer but 'm worried i'll have to spend 200 bucks every year since I live outside philly and I'm unsure if they'll die ever winter. or how to care for them and winterize them. do I need to feed them additional nutrients or something?
I also feel like this is a major reason my fish keep getting seen by this damn heron.
Any advice for a new pond guy looking for plant cover?
