 Going Dormant!
As the air and water temperatures begin to cool you will notice your plants dying back. At this time it is very important to remove any dead plant material or leaves which have fallen into your pond. Doing this will help prevent a toxic build up of decaying matter which can rob your pond of oxygen. Algae growth will slow with the decrease of sunlight and cooling of temperatures resulting in nice clear water. It's important to know that as the temperature drops your fishes activity and metabolism will also slow thereby requiring far less food. If you do feel the need to feed make sure to give only what the fish will consume in 5 minutes so as not to foul the water with excess nutrients.

During pond season (~mid March - October) we offer one of the largest selections of hardy plants for the bog or water garden in San Luis Obispo County.  Included in our selection are oxigenators, various colors of water lilies, water iris, water clovers, annual floating plants and much more!  We also sell mosquito fish and several types of water snails to help keep down the algae.
