£7.00

Available to buy today

Vegetable based flake food product that will help to provide tadpoles with the correct type of nutrients. There is a different Tadpole Food for Late stage development too.

Safe for all other kinds of wildlife including household pets

When to use - Early stage tadpole food meets the dietary needs of tadpoles (newt, frog and toad) in the early stages of development - up to the development of back legs.

Benefits - Supplement to naturally occuring food, allowing more tadpoles to reach maturity. 

Care tips - If excess food is left uneaten in the pond to sink and decay it can encourage algae so reduce the quantity if any is left on the surface of the pond.

Directions and Dosage:

Use a pinch of the flakes sprinkled on the pond surface once a day. It is an organic product so no harm will be done if you add too much (besides encouraging algae). 

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.
