Why Is Japanese Knotweed A Problem?

  • The weed spreads radpildy during the warmer months - up to 2.1m (7ft).
  • Eradication requires determination as it is very hard to remove by hand or eradicate with chemicals without expert knowledge and experience.

Do I Have To Get Rid Of It?

  • No, but you will need to control it's growth.
  • If you need a mortgage then your lender will require you to have a management plan in place.

Can I Get Rid Of Knotweed Myself?

  • Yes, but with caution.
  • Disposal of the plant and its roots is controlled, you can't just dump it in your garden and recycling bins. It has to be disposed of in a specialised controlled landfill or incinerated at a licensed unit.
  • You could be fined up to £5,000 or be sent to prison for up to 2 years if you allow contaminated soil or plant material from any waste you transfer to spread into the wild.
