News and Information
There have been local reports of Himalayan Balsam growing along the river banks of the Tud. This is an invasive non-native plant. If you discover it growing on your property it is recommended to remove it and destroy the plants, do not put it in your brown bin. Further details on Himalayan Balsam and how to identify it can be found on the RHS website. Information on how to remove it is available from the government.
