    I have a small moulded plastic-whatever pond. It did contain fish but now nowt but an island of water lily. Originally Val & I bought three roots, White, pink and yellow, eventually the plants flowered. Now the three have become one great mass measuring about 3ft x3ft. The mass has got to go. I will chop the root mass into chunks. Here's free item. All I ask is the postage cost. I hate simply dumping any plants.

        Thats the problem with pond plants,they just keep going nuts. Ive had to dump so many iris,marsh marigolds and bull rush.
        The fish keep attacking the water lillies so theyre kept in check.

        I've been trying to get rid of water lilies for years.
