Himalayan Balsam Season is Here Again!
The image below is of Fox Hollow at the northern end of Hoo Wood. It looks beautifully green, but the wood floor is carpeted with 400mm high invasive Himalayan balsam; it will eventually grow to a height of around two metres.
The marsh cattle have been on Himalayan balsam eating duty for a while now, and they are chomping away in the Riverside Pasture as I write this post. We will move them from field to field throughout the growing season.
