Hummersea Nature Reserve

About Hummersea Nature Reserve

Hummersea supports over a thousand plants and is the largest “colony” in our area. They grow well here because the sloping tops to the rock cliffs are dotted with wet springs giving broad patches of damp heavy-clay soil. Also important to their survival are the mini-landslides which expose new bare wet soil on which the fine, wind-blown seeds can germinate. With no competition from surrounding vegetation they thrive.
