    "Most pond plants are good rushes and irises are very good for helping frogs/newts to get out if and when they need to you can also leave a piece of hessian sacking hanging down in the water so any animals escape"

    "Within the pond, water lilies are a wonderful option, as frogs can hide beneath them, lay their eggs on the underside of the leaves, or rest on top of them. The flowers will also bring in insects for them to feast on, and many of the insects will serve as pollinators for some of your other plants."
