Pond problem plant life

Posted: 14/07/2014 at 21:54

Duckweed - nigh on impossible to get rid of them - they come in on the legs of birds and the skins of frogs - neighbour's pond  is totally covered with it - it was only a matter of time before it arrived in our new pond and we noticed it last week - all you can do is skim as much as you can off every so often.  It reproduces rapidly.  It does no harm and provides ponds with much needed shade at this time of year.

Hi, we can't see your picture.  To upload a photo you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and follow the instructions.  Afraid it doesn't work for phones - yet.

 

what is this?

It looks to me like a wild member of the euphorbia family - Petty Spurge.  Most people regard them as weeds

Scroll down and click on the picture of unripe fruit - it should zoom in for you - the fruit looks like your picture.

When you say 'small terracotta pots' what size are you talking about  There's not many things that will be happy in a small pot for 'a good few years'.
