SAY THANK YOU TO THRIFT
Thrift – or Armeria Maritima, if you prefer the Latin – is a wildflower we just love. It’s been in bloom all along the south coast for a number of weeks. It just makes us think of happy days and carefree times.
But there’s another reason to love thrift. This beautiful little plant can soak up toxins. It’s what scientists call a hyperaccumulator of heavy metals – and it can be planted to clean up contaminated land.
