WARNING! CONTAMINATION BY MARE’S TAIL
A load of manure from the Royal Stables has been put on plot 126, at the south-east corner of the allotments. This area is infested with mare’s tail, a weed that is almost impossible to eradicate.
Please do not take any of this manure if you have a plot anywhere else on the site, since it could well be contaminated and we are trying to limit the mare’s tail infestation to the south-east corner.
Please click here to read Ashley Catto’s article on mare’s tail.
We will clear an alternative area for manure deliveries, well away from the mare’s tail. This will be one of the tasks for the next Sunday work morning, which we are organising for Sunday August 3rd. Please come along and lend a hand – it’s for everyone’s benefit.
