A little more about Japanese Knotweed
Perhaps a dead giveaway is that Japanese knotweed has its origins in Japan. The plant was originally introduced into Britain during the 19th century and it was introduced as an ornamental plant due to its pretty appearance.
Japanese Knotweed grows freely in Japan and Japan doesn’t suffer from the same affects that we do here in Great Britain. This is mainly due to the eco system in Japan where they have native bugs called the Aphalara Itadori that eat and control the growth of Japanese knotweed. In the UK, the Aphalara Itadori isn’t native and therefore we don’t have any form of natural control to stem or stop the growth of Japanese Knotweed.
Japanese Knotweed possesses a risk due to its highly invasive nature and its incredibly fast rate of growth. It grows through almost all structures including concrete. Once the shoots or stem has penetrated the concrete, its rate of growth then increases whilst it works its way further into the structure eventually forcing it apart often causing severe damage.
