Make a frog pot

Re: Make a Frog Pot!

Hi All!

Big frog fan here, I used to keep GTF as pets.

When I discovered this guy living in my colourbond fence post, I knew I needed to do something:

Given I have a dog, a frog pot was not optional - she's too nosey!  So, I decided to make a water garden/ frog pond.

I purchased a plastic raised garden bed from Bunnings for $29 and sealed the bottom of the legs with silicone to keep the water in.

I then added some plants: Elephant Ears, Swamp Mazus, Blue Bacopa and Yellow Water Canna to start off:

I got the smaller plants sitting a different heights for some variation.  I plan to add a few more plants.

Hopefully my backyard buddy will like it, if not I'll have a nice water garden.

As the water is stagnant, I've added a few drops of  Envirosafe Mosquito Drops, I may eventually invest in a solar pump if needed.  

Edit: Finished it this afternoon (Wednesday). Added 3 more plants: Water Ribbons, Sweet Flag, & Variegated Japanese Rush
