Alan Titchmarsh is challenging councils to adopt Plantlife’s Guide to Good Road Verge Management:

1. Cut the full width of the verge once a year, no earlier than the end of August and no later than the end of March. Where a road passes through woodland, cutting should be carried out no later than the end of January.

2. Between the beginning of April and the end of August, do not cut the verge except to maintain sight-lines or for other road-safety purposes.

3. Gather and remove cuttings wherever possible.
