Customer Stories – Adrian Rodgers

Here’s a great review we recieved about Pond Klear from Amazon Customer, Adrian Rodgers –

“For as many years as I can recall our well stocked fish pond has turned green in spring and we haven’t seen a fish until almost autumn. We’ve tried plants (much to the delight of our grass carp), as many chemical remedies to reduce the algae bloom as there are on the market and traditional barley hay. It’s safe to say that we have never known what eventually gets on top of the problem, it just clears one day.

This year however is different. We introduced your product in early April during which, luckily for us, there was a really cold spell which, presumably delayed the onset of our annual algal bloom problem. Your product states that it works at cold temperatures but nevertheless given our 10 year experience of green water and the multiple products used I must say not much success was anticipated. I’m delighted to state that I was completely wrong. I followed up with a second dose a week later and at about 1 month from dose 1 I’ve added a third. We’re now mid May and the pond is delightfully clear despite the warmer weather and long daylight hours. We no longer have to wait until feeding time for a glimpse of a fish mouth!

Further, the slurry I remove from the filter box no longer sends a whiffy bad eggs aroma up my nose when I lift the lid and I suppose this is a further effect of your product.

An excellent product which I will buy again.

Regards

Adrian Rodgers, delighted customer.”

Customer Stories – Ian Stewart

We recently sent some Envii Foundation to competition grower, Ian Stewart. Here’s what he had to say –

“I remember as a young boy in the Sixties, watching my father tend the plants in the Colliery Manager’s greenhouse and I asked him, “What makes a good gardener?”

He replied, “A plant is like a human, it does not like to be too wet or dry, too hot or cold.” These were wise words.

Looking around, all the plants were glowing with health this year. I have used Envii Foundation and the results brought back memories of those plants that were grown to perfection.

I potted show leeks on from 7inch pots to 12inch deep fill pots. The plants put on so much growth they were pot bound in 4 weeks! With some of the leftover mix, I potted the tomatoes and they doubled in size in one week.

I am too well known in the North East to recommend anything that isn’t the best as we have some of the greatest show gardeners in the world here and they would put me in my place if I was wrong!

I am looking forward to a full season using Bio8’s Envii products as they are an asset to any gardener that wants the best.”

Customer Stories – Wolfhound Mum

“Wolfhound Mum” bought a bottle of Pond Klear on Amazon. Here’s what she wrote about her experience

“After having problems with both my UV lights, the water in my pond had become really bad, not only green, but the debris suspended in the water made it impossible to see all but the largest fish (& then only when near the surface). I bought this on a whim, not really convinced it would work, it seemed too good to be true. Wow… This stuff is amazing. I used double the dose as recommended for the 1st application on a Wednesday night & by Friday morn’ not only could I see all my fish, I could see the bottom of the pond. The fact it was harmless to dogs was essential as even though my pond is raised, our wolfhounds use it as a large drinking bowl. They are all fine but probably scare the heck out of my previously sight impaired fish. Can’t recommend enough. I would not have been able to see these fish just 4 days ago.”

How To Clean A Pond Without A Filter

We’re constantly being asked –  Will Envii Pond Klear work on a pond without a filter?

The short answer is that it does work on ponds without filters.

Here’s the longer answer…

The bacteria in Pond Klear eat the organic matter (i.e. twigs, bird poo, fish food etc) that decays causing algae and sludge. However, it would be a tall order for them to eat all of the algae and sludge created so they also detach it from any surfaces and clump it together allowing it to be caught in the filter.

So Pond Klear WILL work in a pond without a filter but it won’t work anywhere near as quickly.

Because of this we generally recommend that people use Pond Klear Xtra and Sludge Klear in a pond without a filter. These products together have a far higher concentration of bacteria and work in tandem to eat the organic matter. While it is more expensive, you are guaranteed results.

It’s also worth physically cleaning your pond as best you can by removing anything from the surface. This will give the bacteria less to do and make it work quicker.

“Sleepless Slugs” are invading British gardens

Last week, BugLife Conservation Charity warned of an invasion of “sleepless slugs” this year.

The organisation suggested that 2016 will see an increased number of slugs due to last year’s wet summer and the warmest winter on record.

Slugs normally hibernate when temperatures drop and stay low. However, this year the temperatures never really dropped which means that slugs have been growing in number all winter long. The warm winter also meant that plants started growing earlier giving the slugs a larger food source and therefore making them bigger.

This could cause devastation to British gardens.

A few weeks ago we wrote two blog posts that could save your garden in the fight against slugs and snails this year!
