Plant Positive

Plant Positive and Green Gym volunteers have focused their efforts on the River Yar catchment which, includes the Wroxall Stream, Scotchells Brook and the Yar itself where Himalayan balsam is widespread. The plant has shallow roots so is easily pulled up. This which must be done before it seeds as when ready to drop the seed case explodes shooting its contents up to 7 metres from the mother plant.
