decided to be simpler - for decorative pond dug pit depth of 50 cm line the bottom, to make amends for the wall (about 45 degrees) and a conventional greenhouse Shots stabilized polyethylene film of thickness of 150 microns.The walls of the reservoir at the top end with stepping stones for which were pressed against the edge of the film.Later, when the nymphs became a lot and it was time construction of the second reservoir, the upper part of the wall, I started to close the black lutrasilom (spanbond).Pond with the best looks and polyethylene under black lutasilom slower grows old and loses its elasticity.
Decorative pond What are the results after five years?Firstly, such a design of decorative ponds was quite viable.Problems with damage to the roots of the film, moles, mice, and other horrors were not.Secondly, the film can not clean up the winter.In the spring there will be less hassle with the launch of the reservoir, plus you get a starter supply of water.And the last - in the water film is not less than two
seasons, and with careful handling, apparently much longer.
course, if you have the desire and opportunity, it is better to build a decorative vodem more thorough.First of all, it is advisable to use a special film for ponds - a more reliable and durable.At the upcoming reconstruction of the pond, I will do so.
Decorative pond few words about the inhabitants of my ornamental pond.It nymphs, calla and alisma.Leaves and calla alisma rise above the water surface covered with leaves nymphs.This makes it more natural to the pond and decorate it.Calla blooms white flowers that resemble calla flowers and produces high alisma arrow and bloom small pink flowers.
nymphs - white, pink, red and yellow (with variegated leaves) with a horizontal, sprawling rhizome.This rhizomatous nymphs are most suitable for ornamental ponds in our climate.

The problem is not in hibernation, but relatively low average temperature of the water in the pond in the summer.Sheets of such nymphs begin to grow as soon as the ice melts and the water temperature in the reservoir will rise a few degrees, and the bloom lasts until late autumn.The highest intensity of flowering, thus, we have, of course, the warmest time.
In conclusion - a few words about overwintering nymphs and their reproduction.For a successful winter is necessary to fulfill two conditions - need to protect nymphs (in containers without leaves) from drying out, and do not freeze.

most simple - move them to the winter with shallow water to deeper water in that part of the ornamental pond, where the pond does not freeze to the bottom.You can also omit the nymphs in the well, used only for irrigation.The second way - is to keep them as potatoes, frost-free in the basement or pit and covered the top with wet sawdust.If the need arises, can be stored for a long time, nymphs and rhizomes in the refrigerator, in a package filled with wet moss.

propagated by dividing rhizomes nymphs.With the proliferation of rhizome on it formed a new growth point, which gradually transformed into virtually independent plants.When transplanting these new plants are separated from the mother plant and planted in containers with soil consisting of a mixture of equal amounts of humus, fat loam and well-rotted compost or manure.If your natural body of water, and does not freeze to the bottom, the nymphs can be planted directly into the ground.
