Giant Hogweed

Giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) is a close relative of cow parsley primarily from Southern Russia. It can reach over 3m in height. Even though this impressive plant can be appealing in some circumstances, many gardeners will want to destroy it, as it is potentially intrusive and the sap can cause very bad skin burns.

Himalayan Balsam

Himalayan balsam (Impatiens glandulifera) is a relative of the Busy Lizzie, but it reaches well over 6 foot, it is an invasive plant and is a major problem, particularly on riverbanks and waste land, but can also intrude gardens. It grows quick and spreads fast, suffocating other plants as it goes.

Field Horsetail

Horsetail (Equisetum arvense), sometimes called mare’s tail, is an intrusive, deep-rooted perennial weed that can spread very quickly to form a thick carpet of foliage, overcrowding less vigorous plants in borders.
