im definitely hands-off when it comes to my wildlife pond, but I think I’d better start removing what I think is bur-reed, not sure what sort. There is not much open water now, so it’s time to remove most of it. 
What time of year should this be done? Is it easy to pull out? Will that achieve anything ie does it regrow from a root etc? After leaving on the banks, any reason I shouldn’t compost it? thanks.
