Bracken o’Blitterator

Crushing bracken diminishes re-growth and spread. The Brack o’Blitterator works by crushing the bracken stalks, causing the sap to bleed and the rhizomes to be starved of nutrition. The result is a much weaker re-growth, as the plant can’t replenish itself by taking nutrients back down the stem. Crushing can be done up to late July. Best results achieved when the fronds have fully opened and the plant has expended most energy. Later crushing is still beneficial although the effect will be less, as the plant will have begun to replenish and store nutrients. In rocky and rough terrain it is advisable to crush early before the cover gets too dense and the ground difficult to negotiate. In this instance it may be necessary to repeat later on in the season.
