Himalayan Balsam control

During last week’s volunteer task, we were tackling Himalayan Balsam again, this time on the stretch from Thannington lakes to Bingley Island.

The invasive species is widespread and requires controlling as it negatively affects local invertebrate biodiversity.

One lesser-known control method is the foraging of the flowers for summer drinks and salads. For a recipe idea for a wildflower cordial, please see this –https://www.theotherandyhamilton.com/wild-summer-flower…/
