I have tried introducing eel grass and American pond weed to my pond and have not had any success as I can never get them anchored to stay in the bottom. I have tried several methods, wading in and planting, using the wrap around weights, and taking crayfish hole mud and making a ball around the roots to toss in the water. Does anyone know of a way to submerge the plants to the bottom with out going into the water ? I have all kinds of lilies which are thriving but not plants.

Get a bunch of cheap brown paper lunch sacks. Put the roots in the bottom of the sack, top with clay and rocks, let the plant poke out the top of the bag. Toss in the pond where the plant will get sunlight.

I had pretty good luck starting plants in pots first this year and once we had them with a good root system in the pot planted them in final locations. Final planting locations were wrapped surrounded with 1/4" hardware cloth/mesh to keep the larger fish, crays, geese and ducks off of it.
