Fall Plant Care For Your Fish Pond, Rochester New York (NY) Near Me
Essential Fall Plant Care
As the weather cools down, it's crucial to adjust your pond plant care routine. Cease fertilization to signal the approaching end of the season. Clear away dead foliage to prevent excessive debris from decomposing in the water.
Additionally, remember to trim plants around the pond to avoid withering and decay. Prune hardy water lilies close to the plant's base and cut back marginal plants to prevent drooping into the water.
Decaying Leaves In The Pond
Decaying leaves pose a threat to your fish by emitting harmful gases. Regularly remove this debris before it sinks to the pond's bottom. While you don't have to eliminate every leaf, focus on clearing the majority.
Consider using protective netting to simplify leaf removal during the fall season. This careful autumn maintenance will ensure the health and vitality of your pond ecosystem.
