  • Finger Pointing….

    I’m always interested in finding out who actually introduced our various invasive non-native species to the United Kingdom? It is often difficult to put a specific name against a particular plant and say – ‘so and so’ was the person responsible for the introduction of ‘x’ plant on ‘insert date’. The name most associated with Japanese Knotweed would be Phillip F Von Siebold who reputedly sent samples of Fallopia Japonica to the Royal Horticultural Society at Kew in 1849 – starting an invasion that is still causing problems today.

    There’s a battle being fought on our very doorsteps for the countryside that we take for granted…. but is it a war that we cannot ever win? Should we even be bothering to fight this onslaught of non-native invaders?....or should we just give up…rollover bury our heads in the duvet and pretend nothing is happening???
