I usually kill most of my pond plants, but this year I am going to try to winter them over. We have not had a hard frost here in lower Delaware yet and I just pulled most of the pots from the pond yesterday.
I have one pot with a first year lotus and first year water lilly which I think I should just sink to the bottom of the pond.
How about the other water lillies? Can the tubers be kept inside somehow? I also have some elephant ears.
Right now everything is in my sunroom which is starting to smell like a swamp. I have a basement that I could store some things in. Last year the garage got too cold and froze most of my plants.
Any suggestions would be more than welcome.
Also, I am thinking about adding a bottom drain to resolve the sludge problem. Am also thinking about a new pump/filter system. Any recommendations?
