The Ayrshire Rivers Trust has appointed Meryl Norris in charge of the task of ridding our rivers of Japanese Knotweed & Himalayan Balsam. Meryl was previously with the Cromarty Trust on a similar project and comes highly recommended. She certainly will be busy on parts of the river, particularly with the Balsam. www.ayrshireriverstrust.org/cisp/
Please refer to the Recommended Methods of Control on the ART web site when dealing with these plants, or contact Meryl for advice.
