25 May 2019 - Himalyan Balsam
The Himalayan Balsam has started to reappear at Barnett Pond. One of our members did a fantastic job last season in dealing with this invasive non-native plant species but it will need continued management. Therefore, if you are at the pond and can spare a few minutes before or after your fishing to lift any plants you see it would be greatly appreciated. May be as well to keep some gardeing gloves in the car as they tend to grow alongside the nettles. Here is a link to the species information page on the website of the Non-Native Species Secretariat in case you are unsure as to what it looks like.
