Thanks, my garden is covered i it and as we don't get frosts, it never gets knocked back. I'll try boiling water
It should simply lift out. Is it mind your own business or Azolla?
It's called helxine.
Just looked at Azolla on line and it could be that which is covering the pond. I do lift it out, but would like to know if there is a more permanent way to get rid of it? I assumed it was Mind your own business because that is growing very near the pond and I thought it had ' crept ' in.
Hiya Denis from Mousehole. Just around the corner from you, st Ives bay area.
Mind your own business is easily killed with glyphosate ....except on lawns. Is that why you asked about lawn sand? You still have time to use glyphosate but before end of the month
Nina, plant it then you'll understand why it's such a problem
I planted a few large seed trays with it one year and lined 2 hanging baskets with it and made a ball. It was very affective. In the border though it is growing inbetween shoots of other plants and not easy to spray so I have to use a hand fork. Even the bad winter didn't kill it
