The seeds grow short grass like stems and as they grow longer they sink to the bottom of the pond and root. Waddy it can be invasive once it gets its feet down. You need you control it. Although easy to pull out it does stir the mud up at the bottom of the pond. The seeds in the pond can be netted out, that's what I do, before they have chance to sink.
Karen our pond had chance to warm up when we had those lovely few days, that spured the plants into growth I think.
Thankyou Meadowland.

Your water looks so clear. My Water Hawthorns are flowering in a green slime, probably because I have Sarracenia in peat on the shelves.

It will soon be time to put the barley straw in to help control the duck weed.

I net out the weed until the water lily cuts out the light and that helps stop it.
