• We need to talk about Montbretia!

    For the last four years I have attempted to remove clumps of Montbretia in my local woodland of Courtmacsherry here on the Seven Heads Peninsula. This very pretty plant has taken over large swaths of the woodland and i have been pulling it out where the ancient oak trees grow and shed their acorn in the autumn, in an attempt to enable young oak saplings to take hold and ensure oak succession in this threatened habitat.
