Blanket weed uses

Are there any uses for blanket weed. For instance when I fish it out can I put it around new trees as mulch and to tackle the weeds

    When I fish out my blanket weed I leave it on the side of the pond for any little creatures to crawl out and then tend to forget it and it sort of disappears.  I assume it is just rotting back into the soil (there are lots of plants around the pond.  Therefore I guess you will be able to use it as you say Steve.

    Makes lovely compost.

    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    I'd go with the leaving for a day, then composting. As F2 says, it does " sort of disappear" so not much use as a weed suppressing mulch. Make more compost and use that to mulch instead.

    I plop mine in the bog garden next to the pond...
