Duncan – Please consider dear broom bloom killers.
I noted a few days ago, with sadness, because I like broom plants and feel they beautify our highways, create jobs perhaps and solve a large problem our
agriculture is facing with declining bee populations due to toxic herbicide use. The bush I was studying had at least three to four honey, mason, or other bees enjoying the natural habitat, and doing bee-like things.
Perhaps broom is actually a saviour to our area. Perhaps we need to learn, how to manage and work with a vegetation that is here to stay thanks to a pioneer in the 1800s, despite people’s opinions, not fully studied with growing global problems.
I should like you to note, my new biz uses the beautiful bounty in a most enchanting way. Pattern Interrupt. I see its beauty, and much more!
