Japanese knotweed new shoots

Japanese knotweed springs into action - red shoots spotted across the UK

It is that time of year again; new Japanese knotweed shoots have been spotted across the UK.

It is no co-incidence that Japanese knotweed has been described as indisputably the UK's most aggressive and destructive invasive plant (Environment Agency). The annual spend in the UK on control and eradication is £165m, with in excess of 500,000 homes being affected.
