Balsam Bashing!

One of the many things we do in the conservation group is to control the amount of Himalayan Balsam that would otherwise take over all other riverbank plants down the Brunstane Burn.

Another successful day on Friday 7th August trying to remove as many “Himalayan Balsam” as possible. They may look lovely, but they are massively invasive. Largely impossible to remove from the infested south bank of the Burn, but the North side should be clear. Some are very big at over 2m tall!
