Wildlife Area Visit 12th April 2014

Wildlife Area Session 12th April 2014

This weekend we found, what seemed like thousands, Sycamore seedlings round the wildflowers.

If not removed, these seedlings will grow into saplings with deep roots.

Unfortunately, the most efficient method of removing these seedlings is by hand.

 

Here, Simon is removing bindweed which has grown in a short space of time.

Here, Anne is pruning dead flower heads (daffodils), a process of removing  dying or dead flowered heads giving the plant a chance of flowering again.
