Dealing with rampaging duckweed

20140801-190845.jpg
Last year we had virtually no duckweed, but this year’s warm weather has encouraged it to grow at a ferocious rate so that after a 10 day absence we returned to find a bright green pond with no water visible beneath the smooth carpet of weed. For an account of how we dealt with it, see this post in The Garden at the Old Brewhouse blog.
