We have all seen a particularly interesting flower or a stand of flowers on a roadside or footpath bank or verge cut down in their prime when the councilís contractors come along with their machinery. This problem was particularly brought home last year when a rare butterfly orchid was strimmed whilst in full bloom. In an effort to lessen the likelihood of this happening again a trial has begun to mark these areas so that the contractors, council workers, parish footpath officer or otherwise well meaning individuals can be made aware of these importance plants.

A similar scheme exists in Dorset and it is hoped that it will eventually be adopted throughout Devon. Details of Uplymeís scheme can be found on the parish website:

http://www.uplymeparishcouncil.org/footpaths.html

There you will find what to do if you know of a plant or area that you consider worthy of protection.
