Help York’s most endangered citizen – the Tansy Leaf Beetle* – by growing it some plants to live on! A couple of people helped in 2013 and we’ve planted what they grew already.
You can help the Friends of Rawcliffe Meadows plant them in the Spring of 2014 in a suitable location where they will both flourish.
Send us an email and we can supply a packet of seeds to grow at home which will hopefully be viable. The instructions are simple:
1. Sow seed directly onto any general purpose compost in autumn, winter or spring and cover lightly. Keep the pot or tray in a well-lit position, protected from frost, and keep the compost moist.
2. When the plants are 6”/15cm tall give us a call and we’ll arrange a planting session!
Get in touch and we’ll you send the seeds.
