Default Roots from bedding plants growing over the liner and into my pond.

My question is would there be any benefit to the pond to have these
roots growing it the pond? If not I will just cut them out.

They remove nitrates from the water, a very good thing indeed. ) ~ jan

not just use up wastes... they will become home to critters the fish will love to
dine on. Ingrid

I have ferns that have "volunteered" all over my pond. When the roots get
into the water, the fish eat them. It's a real giggle to watch Big Red with
a mouthful of root tugging for all she's worth to break it loose, then swim
all over the pond defending her "prize".

I planted a few kinds of mint around the ugly edge of my VF. That stuff had
roots 4 feet long into the filter by mid summer. If you fill it with water,
they will come.
