Much needed…warm weather

Well mother nature looks like she’s going to turn things around and start giving us in the north some warmer weather beginning next week.  Usually May things start to warm up and it won’t be long until we can begin putting out plants in the pond. A good rule of thumb is always make sure […]

love winter..

I can’t say I dislike winter….when it snows everything looks so pretty but then this winter has been pretty nice so far.  Temperatures are in the 50s today and the SUN is shinning.  Unusual for January in Ohio.  The pond is frozen but only a thin layer and the fish aren’t moving much although I […]

Approaching end of summer

It won’t be long and summer will be over.  I already notice a difference with the days getting shorter.  It has started to cool off some from the hot weather we’ve been having.  All is doing well in the pond and it won’t be long and the garden will be finished.  I canned the first […]

Summer heat

This has been a hot summer so far. Its important if you have fish in your pond that you make sure the water isn’t too warm for them. As your water evaporates replenish with cool water. Your fish will be happy! The tropical waterlilies sure are blooming up a storm in my pond.     […]

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 […]

New Lotus for Dragonfly

Signs of spring 2011.  We’re excited about the new lotus we have this year.  We try to add one or two new a year.  The new lotus for Dragonfly Aquatics are great lotus for those smaller ponds and containers.  The Green Maiden and and Snow White.  But sorry no Seven Dwarfs.  The flowers on the Green Maiden change […]

Salvinia

   New this year for Dragonfly Aquatics and will be added to our store. A floating, rootless aquatic fern that floats just below the water surface producing a pair of floating or emergent leaves that are green in color and oblong in shape. They have a third leaf that is brown in color and dangles underwater […]

Dwarf Papyrus

One of our most popular bog plants is the Dwarf Papyrus.  I think its an unusual looking plant and adds alot of dimension to the pond.  It always seems to grow well and is one pond plant that is easy to grow and attend to.  The Dwarf Papyrus is a good bog plant to create […]

Customer’s Pond

 Cooler temperatures are the thing again with a slight freeze in Ohio.  I tend to feel drained when the days are rainy but that sunshine sure makes one feel good again!  We turned the garden over this week and that’s the last of the tomatoes until next year.  I do really enjoy the garden and the benefits of […]
