4500l Barley Straw Pond Flakes
A clear garden pond is made easy with barley straw. Considered to be one of the most effective products available in today's market, it's safe for fish, pond life and aquatic plants with no nasty chemicals and all-natural ingredients.

An environmentally friendly product that contains only natural active ingredients, this is a proven solution to eliminate algae, blanket weed, duckweed and green water problems without having to rely on harsh and harmful chemicals.

The product is easy to use; simply remove from the outer packaging and put it in your pond. The flakes will quickly absorb water and sink so there's no unsightly surface debris.

It's best to begin use of pond flakes at the beginning of spring when conditions are right for the growth of algae and weeds etc but there's no reason not to start at any time of year. At the time of installation, we would recommend removing any surface weeds yourself to give the flakes the best chance and get a crystal clear pond for the remainder of the season.

"I've tried these lots of times. but the time before I lost everything in my pond. and I cried. But as it is winter I went back to them as they clear the water so quickly. there is just one problem they are supposed to sink which they did. but this time they came up. and they did not do there job. so I had to open the bags and drop the badly flakes drop to the bottom of my pond they are hopefully working better than they were. it's just I now have frothy water and it's also muddy. I'm concerned about my fish."

"We have been plagued by blanket weed and duckweed all summer. Have tried several products, some expensive, some sort of worked. The net bag works very well and tethered on string for easy removal. In just a few days after the pond clean which is recommended, I saw the duck weed start to return. Within literally hours of putting in the barley flakes the weed disappeared and has not returned. This was two weeks ago. I would also recommend, clean the pond out before starting the barley flakes. I also poured a solution with the barley flakes around the pond and dunked new plants in a bucket with the barley flakes before putting them in."

"The organic Barley flakes have exceeded expectation...they attract LEECHES!!! I have tried everything over the years with very limited success. I attached the bag to a length of wire, dropped the bag into the pond, attaching the wire to the side of the pond. After a week in the wild life pond, at the side in the sun, the bag was alive with Leeches, absolutely revolting. I lifted the bag out of the pond and submerged it into a jug of salt water. Left it over night, all of the Leeches were dead, safe to throw out with the general rubbish. Nothing short of a miracle!"

"I had always had a green pond, earlier this year I tried straw barley in tubes, I bought five, but sadly they had no affect on my pond and they floated for weeks, making my pond literally unsightly. This time I decided to return to the flakes, I bought five containers holding two pouches. I put them in, and within a space of two days my green pond had been transformed to a sight to behold, my wildlife, were & still are thriving, & birds come to bathe, & drink. Its as though an angel, waved her wind, thank you primrose for the flakes, I wouldn't have known what to do without you. Or the flakes, they saved my pond & wildlife."
