What did I do wrong? by Harriett Wright
I potted several small Trudy Slocum water lilies in a container 7 inches deep and 24 inches in diameter. I used a light weight potting mixture from Lowe's and put a layer of sand on top. About a week later I looked at my pond and the whole container was floating upside down! Not quite all the...

How do you design a pond that won't overflow in heavy rain? by [email protected]
I am planning to dig a small pond probably about 8 ft by 6 ft. It will have a small waterfall and a skimmer. In heavy rain, is there a way to keep the pond from overflowing?

Brown water! by Joan

Hello, Each year my pond produces more fish than I can take care of. What do people do with their extra goldfish? Fishermen say it's not good to dump them into streams because they eat the small gamefish. Would a river be a good place to put extra goldfish into? Thanks, Jim
