Greater Yellow Rattle

The Heritage and Garden Group are working in partnership with Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) to undertake special cutting of the SSSI site to promote growth of the Greater Yellow Rattle (GYR). This involves cutting grasses and other species in and around the GYR to certain heights to encourage dispersal of the GYR seeds. Further work to be carried out in a weeks time. As East Haven is the only place in Scotland were the GYR grows naturally we are keen to do everything we can to protect and promote this unique plant.
