JAPANESE KNOTWEED REMOVAL
Japanese Knotweed first arrived in the UK from Lieden in Holland in 1850. Guess where? Kew Gardens! The first nursery to sell it to the public was in Kingston. No surprise then that it causes problems in the London area to this day.
It’s a straightforward question with a simple answer. London has a high density population, not to mention a 2017 target to double the current rate of home-building. If Japanese Knotweed appears, then its impact is devastating since properties are often closely-packed. One rhizome can spread up to 7m underground and the plant can grow as much as 2 cm a day. A single square metre patch of Japanese Knotweed may have around 250 shoots. These will damage drains, roads, pavements, paths, driveways and walls.
