Froggie In The Rhodo Garden

I've been posting a lot lately - here and at the roses forum. This is our first year in our new house/garden. I am doing a lot of renovating outside. I just planted a garden area with rhododendrons and azaelas --- over on the other side of this area some hydrangeas. (I know not to kill my rhodos by adding aluminum-something to the hydrangea soil).

Am discovering my yard has frogs. I've seen big ones --- like the size of a baseball when they are just sitting there. When I go out and water my rhodos, I hear a frog croaking from under one of the plants. Is he going to be a problem to my plants?

Not a problem for plants - frogs are carnivores. They eat other animals, typically many types of bugs and worms.

Frogs (and toads) are awesome. Enjoy your amphibious friends!

Unless there is a pond very near by, they are likely toads. Agree with the above posts, they are good to have in your garden.

Unless they are the invasive species of bullfrogs that I seem to recall the Victoria, BC area was plagued with!
