Watch out for the seeds!

The ripe seeds of a Himalayan balsam plant explode when matured. This explosion can spread seeds up to seven metres away from the plant.

This is why it’s important to have an expert remove these plants – they spread very easily.

We’re proud to have locations in London, Leeds, Birmingham, Liverpool, Hull, Manchester, Bristol, Newcastle, Sheffield, Cardiff and Bury St Edmunds.
