The demand for seed is increasing and this begs the question of its value.
If the value increases sufficiently there will come a point where it will be viable for the owners of suitable heather ground to grow the heather as a crop. The heather on a suitable area would be nurtured specifically for cutting in return for a payment when it is harvested.
This may already be in the minds of owners of moorland, but it would be interesting to learn at what price this would become a worthwhile exercise. Has anyone got any thoughts?
