from Wakoola Water Gardens!
It is the last blast of winter and we are looking
towards spring at Wakoola Water Gardens. We
thought we'd send you a quick note to give you
some last tips for winter and to tell you about
some of the things that are going on at your
local pond and garden center-Wakoola Water Gardens
to see you soon at Wakoola!

leaves off the pond bottom
Before the weather starts warming up you should
use a net to get the remaining leaves off the
bottom of the pond. Left over, decomposing leaf
debris is perfect algae food so get it up now
to help fight algae bloom in the spring.
feed the fish
With our mild winter we have had quite a few
nice days where the weather warms up enough
for your fish to start moving around. Resist
the urge to feed them. Their digestive systems
work much slower in the winter and the food
you feed them today may stay in their bodies
way too long if the temperature dips drastically.
Fish are good scavengers and they can find algae
on the rocks or side of the pond to eat if they
really need something. Wait until the temperature
in the pond stays above 55-60 degrees for a
week before you feed them. We have received
a shipment of wheat germ, refillable food so
you can stock up now for spring if you are out.
vigilant about herons
Wakoola and some of our customers have had regular
visits from herons lately. If left to their
own devices, they can clean out your pond fish
in a couple of meals! Be sure to have something
in the water that your fish can hide in. Plastic
crates, rock shelves, glazed pots laid on their
sides all work well as a hide out for fish.
You can also refer to our newsletter where we
went into great detail about how to keep your
fish safe by clicking
back plant material
If you still have brown leaves left on your
water plants, cut them back to just above the
water's surface now. This will make your plants
look so much nicer when they start growing in
