Viking plans to organise a trip to Cardington to clear the banks of Himalayan Balsam

Himalayan Balsam is an attractive, non-native invasive plant that commonly grows near waterways in the UK. Growing up to 2.5m high, it was first introduced to the UK in 1839, and has since become the largest annual plant in Britain. Himalayan Balsam is also known for spreading rapidly, with the 800 or so seeds each plant produces being shot up into the air and travelling up to 7m away.
