(2 Pack) Interpet – Interpet Extract Of Barley Straw 250ml : Clears quite quickly

Looks good, i will have to wait some months for the results.

I read some of the reviews and there were mixed feelings as to whether this worked. For our pond it was incredible. Within one week it got rid of this horrible green frothy slime that was on the surface of the pond. It is now crystal clear again and were still in the summer so it has definitely worked. I think it will work on our blanket weed problem too, but that may take a little longer to clear, excellent product.

Since using this our weeds have almost gone , allowing the lillypads to take over the pond surface , not sure if its related but frogs and toads have disappeared. Here are the specifications for the (2 Pack) Interpet – Interpet Extract Of Barley Straw 250ml:

I have a fairly small pond in my garden, designed purely for wildlife – we have cats that would like to have a takeaway in their back garden, so ruled out adding any fish. As such, i suspect that the pond is at the easy-to-maintain end of the spectrum, albeit it is situated close to a walnut tree and therefore needs attention of one sort or another fairly regularly. Even though i stocked the pond up with lots of oxygenating plants and kept the water moving, we did end up with green water and some blanket weed, which was particularly bad when the pond was new. For the first couple of years after installation, i tried barley straw; firstly the logs and then in a reusable ball. Both methods of application seemed to make a difference although it didn’t happen overnight. I decided to try barley straw extract because it seemed a much more convenient means of application and, in such a small pond, less intrusive as well. The liquid extract is very easy to use, particularly as the bottle has a very handy integral measure that enables fairly exact measurement of doses (as long as you know how much water you’ve got in your pond). I tried one of the small bottles first, partly as i had no idea of the capacity of the pond initially or how well it would work. I now tend to purchase the 1 litre bottle as it usually offers best value although, as always, it is an idea to check for special deals on the smaller ones as well.

Using this in conjunction with barley straw certainly keeps the algae at bay, even in the hot sunny days we have had recently.

Blagdon extract of barley straw. I had quite a lot of blanket weed in my wildlife pond and after manually removing it repeatedly i though i’d try this option. I estimated the volume of water in my pond and dosed as recommended. Nothing happened, i thought the weed would start to disappear after a few days, but no joy. I left it for three months and then did the same again. After a few days the blanket weed had disappeared and now several months on it hasn’t returned. I don’t have fish in the pond as it is purely a wildlife pond but there are toads and various insects and they don’t seem to be affected by adding the barley straw. I’ve given the remaining solution to a friend now for her pond.

Looks good, i will have to wait some months for the results.

    Did what it said on the label, and it helped to clear the water a bit, nothing magical or special about it.

      1. Worked really well and destroyed most of the blanket weed in our pond. Needs one more treatment to fully destroy it. However i would definitely recommend this product.
