Heaths, Hedges and Hay Rattle

Tuesday, July 24th 2018

We've had people working all over the reserve today, from cutting net rides, to trimming hedges and removing encroaching vegetation from the Heathland paddocks, it has certainly been a busy day at Foxglove.

The Heathland will need continued maintenance until later in the year when we can stump treat the old willow stools, until then we have Eddie and the new Stihl clearance saw! 

On top of all these other activities we've also made a start on removing thistles from the Hay Meadow and collecting Hay Rattle seeds ready for sowing later in the year and selling right now in the Field Centre.

At £1 a sachet this is an absolute bargain, just sow the seeds on bare ground in the autumn and let the Hay Rattle do the rest!
