Barley Straw Bag for Pond with Lavender (Pk 2)
Our barley straw bags are a natural, eco-friendly solution for controlling algae in ponds and other bodies of water. Barley straw is a 100% natural product which when added to your pond will produce clear water.
Made from biodegradable materials, our barley straw bags are easy to use and safe for use around fish, plants, and other aquatic life. Simply place the bag in your pond and let the barley straw do its work. The straw will begin to break down and release compounds that help to inhibit the growth of algae, helping to maintain a healthy balance in the pond ecosystem.
Our barley straw bags are convenient and effective, and are a great alternative to harsh chemicals that can harm pond life.
Try to introduce barley straw into your pond before algae occurs. Wet the bales before adding them to your pond, this starts the natural process to combat the algae. This process is enhanced by the inclusion of lavender which gives significantly better results
Replace every 8 weeks in the spring/summer/autumn period. 1 straw bale will treat ponds up to 2250 litres (500 gallons). For persistent algae issues, add another bale. Also contains lavender which gives significantly better results.
