Planting Marsh Mallow

5th September 2008, Friday

On 19th August, 120 Marsh Mallow pot grown plants were planted out at Castle Water to bulk up the previous plantings there. This was done on a regular Rye Harbour Nature Reserve volunteer workparty (click here for more info). The weather has since been wet, so we are expecting good survival and hope that this colony will be large enough to support a population of the Marsh Mallow Moth.

Thanks to Ron Nash and  Dorothy Norman for providing these and previous plants.
