Overview:

South West Peak Landscape Partnership Events – Himalayan Balsam Clearing and River Walks

Himalayan Balsam – volunteers needed

Himalayan balsam is an invasive plant that grows in damp places, in England that is generally along our riverbanks and canals. An annual can grow up to 3m a year. It shades out our native plants, and then dies back over winter leaving the banks vulnerable to erosion. Each plant can produce 500 seeds so it spreads very quickly.
