More Hate Hogweed

Today we had a successful session tackling the Hogweed growing on the recreation area where the Mochdre Brook meets the Severn.  5 Custodians decimated those nasty plants and because the ground was soft we were more successful than usual in getting the roots out.   The impression is quite clear that there are less Giant Hogweed plants than usual and most of them are this season’s seedlings.  We are definitely winning but will never completely stop them of course.  The other good sign is that the native hogweed is now thriving so we are helping the good, local guys.  Well done the team!

There is another session up and down stream from the Halfpenny Bridge on Saturday, 14th May.  All are welcome.
