If you can grow plants from seed we would like you to help with a local conservation project to create more habitat for the very rare Marsh Mallow Moth by growing Marsh Mallow plants from local seed. Planting of our seed can be until about mid-May in small pots, then returning the plants to us in September to plant at several locations on the reserve. We are looking for about a thousand plants, so if you can help with 10 or more that would be great. For more details click here - we can post seeds to you. For a photo of the moth click here for a previous posting.
