some of the UKs most common invasive weeds.
Japanese knotweed is regarded by many as one of the most invasive plants in the United Kingdom. Its resistance to traditional weed killers and lack of natural enemies in this country allow it to out- compete most native plants.
Giant hogweed is one of the most invasive plant species found in the United Kingdom. It spreads very quickly and dominates native plants. Its sap can cause severe chemical burns if it comes in contact with a person's skin.
Himalayan balsam is a tall, beautiful plant from the Himalayas in Asia. Its large pink flowers can be seen along riverbanks across the UK as the species favours damp conditions. It can spread rapidly and oust native species, reducing the ecological value of the land and leaving the soil vulnerable to erosion.
