Getting the timing right

I mentioned in an earlier post that curly leaved pond weed is reported by the RHS to sink and start rotting in July after it has flowered: well after I got back from holiday on July 20th it had already happened, and the weed was no longer visible.

I have a nasty feeling I’ll find an awful lot of it rotting on the bottom, and I’ll try to rake it out in the winter. The lesson for next year is to cut it all in June and not leave half of it for late July. Impossible to get rid of it, but important to get it under control.
