Japanese Knotweed Identification

Japanese Knotweed Identification

Japanese knotweed has growth cycles that make the identification of this plant problematic throughout the year. It sprouts red asparagus-like buds in the spring which grow up to 10cm a day. In the summer the shoots reach a height of up to 4m forming dense stalks much like bamboo. Red and purple spots can be observed on the stems as well as its spade/heart-shaped vibrant green leaves. late in the summer distinctive white flowers can be observed before it dies back for winter. The leave discolours and fall at the end of the season leaving the bare hollow stems which can be affected by severe weather making them difficult to identify.

Japanese Knotweed Eradication Explained

Japanese Knotweed Eradication Explained

Japanese knotweed eradication can not be achieved by herbicide treatments alone. Eradication often requires some form of mechanical strategy if not complete removal from site. Due to the extensive root systems underground, especially with larger infestations, the chemicals applied can stop the plant growing but disturbances to the ground can cause the plant to regrow even after years of treatments. Nonetheless, the Property Care Association(PCA) states eradication is achieved when there have been two full growing seasons without regrowth. It is important to remember this doesn’t mean your land is knotweed free. Book a survey with JBB to find out if you can achieve TRUE eradication.
