PLEASE DO NOT INTRODUCE NEW PLANTS TO THE QUESTLETT NATURE RESERVE WITHOUT SEEKING ADVISE
The Councils Leisure Services department has a constant battle to rid the reserve of Japanese Knot weed
The FQNR and the Birmingham City Council would ask residents not to donate and plant flowers and bushes in the Queslett Reserve.
We appreciate the gesture but due to issues of spreading soil contamination , pests and introduction of invasive none native plants to the reserve decease it is not advisable to plant any wild life species without seeking permission.
Japanese knot weed is an example where planting in the reserve can cause soil contamination which costs a lot of money to try and eradicate.
