Why Japanese knotweed is a problem

Japanese Knotweed will grow anywhere! It colonises and kills the habitat it grows in and can damage asphalt, lamp posts and buildings.

Although it is not toxic in any way, it’s a poor wildlife habitat for our native insects, birds and mammals.

And can be spread only by “mechanical” means – water comes, soil and machinery.
