… because the knotweed… Wishing all our customers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy (knotweed free) New Year!
Beautiful crown not active today! So called because of all the rings (broken off dead stems) which apparently look like a crown. Don’t think I’d like to wear it though!

Lovely growing bonsai Japanese knotweed seen in Sydenham. A little chemical treatment was given to control the plant.
Perfect conditions here, no Japanese knotweed present on this visit. The trees are providing a good canopy for reduced light penetration and ivy is now covering the ground.

No one has touched the area since last year and the plant is happily not active – great control!
