Knotweed in Winter Podcast


 

After a lengthy break from podcasting, we’re back with this podcast on Japanese knotweed in winter! Find it on iTunes here!

This episode of the IWA Invasive Species Podcast features Jed and I (Graham) sitting down to cups of tea in front of a log fire to chat about Japanese knotweed and how to identify this invasive weed in winter. We also discuss the impact Japanese knotweed can have on property and land values. Be wary of buying land in winter as Japanese knotweed may not have been identified since it looks quite different at this time of year compared to the dense, green stands present in summer.

If you’ve spotted any new invasive weeds growing in your property then please get in touch as we’d love to assist you in control and eradication. Any readers fortunate to have weed-free property, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’d love some feedback on our podcast endeavours!

To accompany the podcast audio, here are some photos of Japanese knotweed in winter:
