Early spring is a important time in your pond.  

Frogs will start emerging, sometimes as early as January and head straight to a water source to start breeding.  Toads usually appear in late spring.

It is important to make sure that some early flowering plants are present in the pond and surrounding area to shelter the spawn and the emerging tadpoles.

The plants listed below will give your pond some colour and life during these early months and provide a haven for breeding amphibians.
