Hallo gsd, I can recommend Pond Wizard from T & M, worked well to clear the green water in our pond, which is about 6 x 3 m. Not cheap, but it works!

Hallo Linda,

The RHS says the following:

"A vigorous spreading grass with blue-green foliage, this grows almost anywhere and is particularly valuable for shady areas under trees or in a semi-wild garden. Use it as tall, weed-smothering ground cover, or blend it with other vigorous plants such as self-seeding annuals and perennials for a low-maintenance, cottage garden-style border. It can be invasive, so restrict its spread in more formal surroundings, by treating it like mint and grow in a large pot sunk almost to its rim in the ground. Tall, pinkish flower-heads are produced in summer."

Keeping it in a pot sounds like good advice to me!

"Know-it-alls can’t help themselves and chances are they like to put everyone straight. They feel they are doing you a favour (and sometimes they might be) by telling you how ’it is‘. So keep calm and, like water off a duck’s back, don’t take it as a personal affront. It’s not that they think you are stupid; it’s just that they don’t think much about you at all." - Mark Tyrell

What a lovely jar, did you paint the flowers on yourself or do they come like that?

I keep things like breadcrumbs, ground almonds, raisins etc. in jars like that.

It looks more like a winter aconite to me. Did it have a yellow flower?
