Has anyone else noticed how the roadside verges are loosing wild flowers at an alarming rate? I wrote to the highways agency last June and in their reply they said they have been spraying herbicide and that this is the second year of a two year trial. Treating a 1.2m swathe with selective herbicide and growth retardant to reduce the need to cut so often.
We had a beautiful large patch of early purple pyramid orchids on the A303 but none
came up last year.
