Nick Bailey uses black pond colour
Shows viewers how to make a garden pond in a weekend
The staff at Dyofix were nicely bowled over by the double pond colour whammy when watching the June 2nd, 2017 episode of BBC Gardener’s World.
We were all eagerly waiting for our friend Arit Anderson to explain how her 2016 award-winning design ‘Near Future Garden’ was being recreated at the Eden Project in London (see below) when Nick Bailey began showing viewers how to make a garden pond.
Towards the end of his segment he pulled on a pair of protective gloves and added black pond dye which instantly improved the aesthetics of the pond without harming pond life, which includes visiting insects and amphibians.
Nick took pains to show exactly how the pond was built in a weekend and lists all the plants used in the video. The water plants look fantastic against the black reflective surface.
Do watch the video as he explains why he used the pond colour so well!
