Spring is here, weeds are growing fast.

Wednesday 11th April 2012

As any gardener knows, weeds always grow faster than plants. This is particularly true of invasive weeds such as Japanese knotweed and Giant Hogweed.

Yesterday, I visited a site in Bedfordshire that had Japanese knotweed shoots of up to 3 feet high. As we know Japanese knotweed may grow at a foot (300mm) a week in the spring. The recent rain and mild weather has encouraged early growth of the knotweed.

At the moment, we are treating Giant Hogweed sites around the country, as this short lived perennial is effectively treated at this time. The window of opportunity is quite short, so if you have Giant Hogweed and want it professionally eradicating please contact us and we will supply you with a quotation.

We are proud to say that we follow best practice and work within guidelines as stated in the Code of Practice published by the Environment Agency.

If you would like to talk to a professional about your knotweed problem, please call us. Our quotations are free and without obligation.
