Himalayan Balsam is an invasive plant present in Wrexham and damaging our natural wildflowers.

Every year our country rangers at Ty Mawr and Alyn Waters work with volunteers to “banish the balsam” from our river banks.

They’re beginning to have an impact, as our native wildflowers are starting to recover and are making a comeback on our riverbanks.
