BALSAM BASHING

 

OUR MEADOWS ARE OVERRUN WITH THE HIGHLY INVASIVE HIMALAYAN BALSAM

 

 

Himalyan Balsam, grows up to 2.5m high from seed in a single season, and project its seeds up to four metres in any direction. 

It spreads quickly, particularly along waterways and its success means that when left uncontrolled it will spread rapidly across a large area. As it dies back in the winter it smothers native plants and causes further damage to riverbanks.  

Removing the Balsam in the summer season before the seeds have formed can help to manage the spread of this invasive species, and help protect the environment.

 

We are always looking for volunteers to help Bash the Balsam and will inform you when we are arranging the next working party.
