FLOWER Power Halts Council Lawn Mowers At Inverkip Lay-By

CONSERVATIONISTS have stepped in to protect a large bank of northern marsh orchids at Inverkip from council lawn mowers.

The deep purple flowers have appeared at the War Memorial lay-by beside the A78 near the village. They are only found in the north in the UK.

Laura Reilly of Inverclyde Pollinator Corridor project said: "We have managed to get an agreement from the council that they don't cut grass until the orchids finish flowering.

"We want to raise awareness of this as it is a prominent area and people might wonder why the grass isn't being cut."

Keith Watson, curator of botany from Glasgow Museums, is coming to record the orchids on Tuesday evening (20 June). 

He is running a free botany walk looking at wild flowers in Inverkip from 6 to 8pm on that day for anyone who wants to go along.  

Laura added: "If people see any of these orchids in other places, it would be great if they could send a photo and details of the location to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
