Barleystraw minibales for larger water volumes

On Valentines Day – Love your pond – add minibales of barleystraw so they have time to decompose before the warm daytime temperatures of Spring sunshine.

As the temperature is mild for the time of year now is a good time to start work on your pond. It is still early for algae blooms so add minibales of barleystraw so they have time to decompose before the warm daytime temperatures of Spring sunshine. Extract of barleystraw, being the more instant, concentrated liquid form does not have to be started as early – next month will be fine.

Also replace the ultra violet lamp on your uv clarifier as each will only last 6-9 months and you should start the season with a new one. At the same time clean or replace the glass tube that fits over the lampbulb as if this is dirty with algae or limescale it will stop the uv rays from working effectively against any algae in the pond.
