Sowing Seed

Today I’ve sown four seed trays with tansy seed, collected from plants along the river bank last October. In the spring, I hope to be planting out the tansy plants, to help the tansy beetle which, in Britain, is only found along a thirty mile stretch of the River Ouse, centred on York. I work with the Tansy Beetle Action Group (TBAG), which coordinates tansy beetle conservation. Last year I grew and planted out 1800 plants and helped with the annual tansy beetle survey, in September.
