Many of our group are aware that we are mindful of the Tansy plant when we are out weeding, in order to help with the Tansy beetle conservation
Sophie Badrick is appointed b Buglife as a local Tansy Beetle conservation officer, and she brought along 128 Tansy seedlings for us to plant out. We also cleared competing plants from the vicinity of existing Tansy plants that have established themselves in Leeman Park.
We have also planted Tansy that has been grown from seed by a Leeman Park member, and we intend to collect seed from the plants in the park to grow for next year. If anyone is interested in nurturing some seedlings on their windowsill, conservatory or greenhouse, then please get in touch.Next: Holgate Community Celebration success
