frog survival over winter
I just had to replace my entire liner and, in doing so, lost all the good muck that my frogs liked. however, the frogs stayed (so far). My concern is this winter. I've been told frogs dig into the soil in/around the pond and hibernate. Since my pond was about 10 yrs old, I assume they were living in the soil that accumilated around the base of the lilies and the bottom of the pond. There isn't any soil on the edge, as it's a rubber liner, and now there's very little dirt/muck in the bottom. Can I put a pot or something full of dirt in the bottom of the pond that they can dig under? Any other ideas? You can tell I'm not very knowledgable about this so appreciate any help you can give me.
