  • Published source details Kelly A. & Southwood R.R. (2006) Using pre-planted pallets to stabilise an area of nutrient rich silt at Cockshoot Broad, Norfolk, England. Conservation Evidence, 3, 68-70.


Native wetland species were planted within coir pallets to encourage plant colonisation along a shallow wetland margin in an attempt to improve water quality. Although some species initially grew well they were unable to withstand a period of hot weather and low water levels.
