Busy Season

Well our busy season is upon us and we’re excited about the plants we’re sending.  We have several new pond plants this year.  A couple new lotus, waterlilies and bog plants.  Check them out at our store, www.dragonflyaquatics.com.  I often get questions about whether to use water lettuce or water hyacinths as floaters in the […]

Spring & New Water Lilies

I’m not certain what happened to Spring here but I think it may have been here but we missed it……yesterday little snow flakes were appearing and in a couple days its going to be in the 70s.  What’s up with that??? But even though we’re all anxious for the weather to turn nice so we […]

Spring is starting to bud….

With spring upon us its important to check on your fish.  Its a critical time for them when they start coming out of dormancy.  They are more likely to become vulnerable to illness unless proper steps are taken.   When coming out of dormancy their bodies are low on the important nutrients needed to help ward of diseases.  […]

ice and more ice

Its ice everywhere…..but at least its February so its almost over.   I will say its a pretty site but I still prefer the green color over the white!  I look outside and imagine pictures like this…     The plants continue to grow nicely in the greenhouses and while standing in there you almost can […]

    Well the holidays are over, the tree is down and all the holiday christmas decorations are put away.  I could probably leave my christmas tree up for months as I always miss it once its put away.  Its hard to imagine the room is exactly like it was a month ago because it […]
