As the growing season draws to a close and autumn sets in, Japanese knotweed across Scotland has started shedding its leaves. To the untrained eye, this may look like the scourge of this invasive weed has been quelled but do not be fooled. The rhizomes remain active underground during the winter months, ready to produce new stems in 2011. For this reason, we urge landowners to deal with their Japanese knotweed infestations as soon as possible.
There are many solutions available over the autumn and winter months for removing this weed as well as others such as Giant hogweed, Himalayan balsam and Horsetail. Thinking ahead can save time and money because quick fix solutions such as ‘Dig and Dump’ can cost a fortune and have a negative impact on the environment. Full details of our range of invasive weed treatment options can be found within our website.
