This article discusses how the mild and wet winter will affect knotweed growth. Swansea has been considered a knotweed hotspot, so residents need to be aware that the knotweed growing season has begun, as new shoots have been spotted. It is estimated to cost around £9 million a year to tackle Japanese knotweed in Wales.
Various legislations are in place to help control the knotweed problem, such as ASBOs. Sellers also now have a legal duty to disclose whether the property is affected by knotweed.
