Lowland heath vegetation can be successfully restored on former pasture via the use of sulphur to modify the chemistry of the soil. To maintain this community in the long term, competitive grasses must be suppressed. Essential to this will be maintenance of the correct soil chemistry. We show that sulphur application maintains favourable soil conditions over 12 years after application.
