The growth of Himalayan Balsam is becoming a increasing issue, but we can work together to clear this weed.
The main method of non-chemical control, and usually the most appropriate, is pulling or cutting the plants before they flower and set seed. This is quite easy to do as they have very shallow roots, and the best time to do this is now.
So if you see any growth along the hedgerows when you are out walking please do pull a few plants as you pass.
