Year of the Fix: 2015
Location: Esh Winning, County Durham
Campaign: To stop the spread of Himalayan Balsam

I love the countryside and seeing all the different plants and trees.


Unfortunately, some of these beautiful places are being ruined by Himalayan Balsam, a weed which is destroying the local environment.


They can grow up to three metres tall and cause all the smaller plants underneath to die off because they're deprived of sunlight.

With Fixers, I want to educate people about this issue.

Together, I hope that we can help to control the spread of this problem plant.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

Alicia Bartle Bailey Hendrickson
