Keep it very wet
I planted some supermarket watercress in my pond years ago, it still appears in greater or lesser amount depending on the season.
Ivy is good ground cover and bulbs grow through.
Are you looking for native plants only Peanuts?
A mower is a very good tool for keeping down the weeds once the bulbs have died back
I can see what is probably Geum urbanum and maybe forget me nots
Best thing you could do Rb.
I think that's a Leucojum, common name snowflake.
Sorry about work Hostafan. I've almost forgotten how that went.
I moved a bit further along the chosen border. Slow work, hasn't been dug for years and every time I found a hawthorn/hazel/field maple seedling I dug it up and transplanted to a new piece of hedge. New piece of hedge at some distance from chosen border.
True granma, like borage and nonea and lots of other members of the family. Painful.
Systemic pesticides kill all insects don't they? Is that a good idea?
Leave them to die back naturally, feed them if you do that sort of thing No knots to be tied in leaves.
I never dig bulbs up, though some of mine could do with lifting and splitting up a bit.
