Lizzie, I would think that it is worth it; perhaps Rosie can advise here. Also if you do facebook, apparently there is some info there on something like 'community in bloom'. Again, Rosie is the one who knows about that.

A little showing off and a big thank you

It will then enter eventually into the waterways, carrying all those nutrients...and all the water plants will grow and grow and de-oxygenate the water and the river will be dead

That is your bed time story for tonight children.
