Japanese knotweed is one of the most rapidly spreading problem plants in the UK today, through a combination of its ability to grow from the smallest of fragments and to establish new growth in a wide range of ground conditions. Without timely measures to manage the weed, it can cause major damage to houses, walls and drainage systems.
Japanese knotweed roots can penetrate as far as 3 metres deep and spread up to 7 metres in all directions. In less than 10 weeks, it can grow to a height of 3 metres, with knotweed becoming harder to control the longer it is ignored at the early stages of growth.
