Barley-bio Algae Control does not contain any chemicals and is safe for pets, plants, wildlife and children. You cannot overdose this natural product and cause harm.

Supplied in - 250ml bottle

Treats - Blanketweed and green water

Directions and Dosage:

For existing algae problem - 125ml per 4500 (1000 gallons) litres of water.

As preventative measure - 20ml per 4500 (1000 gallons) litres of water once a week through spring/summer.

For smaller ponds - Use minimum initial dose of 50ml and minimum weekly dose of 10ml for any pond containing less than 2250 litres (500 gallons). The volume of our container ponds are: 60cm wide = 45 litres (10 gallons) and 80cm wide = 105 litres (23 gallons).

To calculate the volume of your pond - length x width x depth in feet x 6.25 = volume in gallons

Volume of our container ponds - 60cm wide = 45 litres (10 gallons) and 80cm wide = 105 litres (23 gallons) so part of a measure is sufficient for these on every top up occasion.

Will my plants arrive potted?

Yes, all our 9cm, 11cm and 23cm Marginal Pond Plants, Deep Water plants and Waterillies will be sent out to you pre-planted in a mesh basket with our aquatic compost and will have been fed with an aquatic feed ball.

Bunched and loose Oxygenators will be sent out bareroot or bunched with a weight and can be dropped straight into the pond as they are delivered .

Moist plants are sent out in solid pots that you would remove before planting into the soil. 

Can Koi fish or ducks eat my plants?

Yes, they may well do. We cannot guarantee that any plants will survive hungry fish and ducks. We would recommend going for Iris or woodier stemmed plants and forming some sort of barrier between the plants and any large fish or wild fowl.

How does my order arrive?

Plant orders are dispatched to UK destinations only but we cannot send to Northern Ireland. Your order will be picked in the Nursery and will be sealed in airtight, waterproof packaging to keep it fresh during transit. Please unwrap all plants from the packaging as soon as possible and place in the situation/depth specified on each plant ticket.
