Beat the Balsam!

July 12, 2013

Himalayan Balsam is a rapid grower along river banks, smothering other plant life as it spreads. Please 'pull a stalk as you walk' and help us control this problem weed. 

As you can see from the picture below, it grows defiantly - in this case it is growing from a British Rail bridge over the Waterloo Line in the Tale Valley. Seeds from this plant could be carried up or down the tracks to London or Exeter!
