Go for it. The manure will offer you so much - bulk for the soil, food for the plants, water retention, cheap etc etc - to me it is a win win situation.

Euphorbia lathyris - use gloves when you pull it out as it produces a latex type sap which is a irritant

Wildlife pond - maybe?

Well I'm impressed - never heard of swan mussels and from what I've just googled supposed to keep your water clean!

Ok, back to your pond. Raised one to raised to adapt so the sunny spot in the garden sounds fine - better than being too close to deciduous trees. You can create shade using plants on the water eg lilies

Main thing with a wildlife pond is to have a gently sloping entry/exit point for your wildlife and to make it at least 3ft deep in part for hibernating creatures.

When you say raised pond - what exactly do you mean? How raised? Is it a formal steep sided affair? Do you have any plants in it at the moment?

And sorry but mussels? Really?

Jack 3 where abouts in the country are you? I'm sure someone would give you plants for free if they are near you....water plants grow so quickly, I am forever giving away bits - I can never understand why they are so expensive.

If you have a freegle group in your area, it might be worth putting a wanted post for some pond plants. I often give away plants on our site and they go like hot cakes.

Got any fruit trees nearby? It looks like it could be a sucker from fruit tree root stock.
