Pond weed

Thank you I will have a go now with a little more confidence than I had before, it makes sense to me now you mentioned all the plants sharing root ball as I have a plant with lovely yellow flowers ( lost the card so dont know the name ) it grows quite tall & was in a small basket on the shelf at the front of the pond but this year it came up at the other side as well been newbie to ponds I couldn't work out how it got there problem solved. I suppose this happens with most first timers but I find my pond too small now & wish I had dug a larger one & designed it myself we had the little plastic pond given & I was hapoy with it the first year but now would like bigger but too worried of disturbing & losing the frogs & any thing else in there.

Thank you I will look into the forget-me-nots although I cant remember which pot they originate from I dont want to kill it as its my favourite I did feel that it was going a bit mad but wasn't sure how to thin it.

Wow that sounds like a positive I will look at it in a different light now instead of with exasperation it always looked like it was unloved & when ever anyone came to my garden & looked into my pond I felt like I had neglected it now I can tell them its positives 🙄

Hi can anyone help my little wildlife pond is 2 year old & this year is full of pond weed I have tried to scoop ot out but it clings round the plants and looks as bad the next day I have lots of frogs but worry that all the pond weed is bad for them & other wildlife. At the end of November should I take all the plants out and swill them then try to get water clear of the pond weed or do the frogs live at the bottom of the pond in winter.

We have had our small wildlife pond for 2 years & although we have frogs we have seen our first frogspawn this year but i can only see 2 tadpoles we have noticed a lot of tiny green leaves on top of the pond does anyone know how to get rid of it we have tried our little net but cant get it all we do have lots of plants in the pond & it tends to congregate around the stems I have heard Bluetitch that newts eat tadpoles but been a newbie im not 100% sure?
