The Japanese Knotweed growing season in full swing – what do you need to know?

The growing season for Japanese Knotweed is certainly in full swing and we are seeing knotweed in various stages of growth across the UK.  One particular infestation just north of London caught our eye this week with canes already reaching over 2m in height!

Described by the Environment Agency as “indisputably the UK’s most aggressive, destructive and invasive plant”, Japanese knotweed is notoriously difficult to treat
