Hi All,

A query re Rhodo ponticum - as it says in the subject line.  Anyone any
ideas - scenario, river bank - upland, fast-flowing in winter; big variation
in levels winter-summer, flowing off through/off Dartmoor - acid sandy clay
granite-derived soils - what is the likelihood of seeds from the ponticum
spreading downstream - in the way eg hemlock, hogweeds, or Himalayan Balsam
do?  Any observatins most useful
