Dear Greenwich council, why are you ignoring the many pleas to cut the grass in this area? I have sent you emails and tried to contact you via Twitter, but to no avail.

This is vile foxtail grass - it is displacing all other vegetation, so please don't try the "bees and biodiversity" excuse. Please cut the grass as soon as possible - soon the foxtail grass will start shedding its horrible seeds for the next season.

  • To the troll who posted the photos of wildflowers (clearly not taken in SE10). There are no wildflowers in SE10, as horrible wall barley is displacing all other vegetation. Please check the original post again - no one is asking for wildflowers to be cut, people are only asking that the council sort out the misery caused by out of control foxtail grass.

  • Thanks for cutting the horrible Wall barley in SE10, we appreciate your work! Kindly try to keep the grass short to prevent the further spread of this awful grass species.
