My excess is "watercress" requiring pruning with a pole pruner, one clip at
a time. My watercress had taken a real hit during the winter, but it came
back BIG time. It is all I can do to keep it from taking over the pond.
Same in the lily pond, it has become a monster,completely covering the
spray bar, which is what I'd hoped, but when it starts spreading over the
surface it takes the space for the water lilies to spread out. ~ jan

Oh man-- I wish I had that problem. My watercress is struggling
along & my wife & her girlfriend have fallen in love with cucumber &
Watercress salad.g
