We continued to treat the watsonia this month adjacent to the road, manually removing as well as trialing a method where leaves are wiped with herbicide. We also had a look at the previous months bluebell creeper treatment site where a small number of small plants were observed (and hand-pulled) and the piles had died off.

This month we tackled some of the watsonia growing adjacent to the road. We also started to cut and paint the bluebell creeper and drag it out and pile it on the edge of the track, this will make dealing with any fallen seed easier to remove.
