blanket weed

The UV will not work on blanket weed though, it only works on clearing the algae that cause green water.

Lyn, some of the barley straw liquids seem to work & some have no effect whatsoever , blanket weed grows where there is an excess of Nitrogen & Phosphate in the water so what you really need is something to reduce these such as Viresco Koi

If the pond is very large you will probably need the entire bale of straw, it's not a cure it's a preventative measure you will still need to remove the blanket weed by hand.

Also as it breaks down it reduces oxygen levels so do not use it in hot weather, it may well take a year to work.

Forester2 the tree lillies don't need staking , they have very strong stems.

It's only T&M that refer to them as tree lillies , they are also called Skyscraper lilllies, Goliath Lillies etc depending on the supplier.
