Japanese Knotweed Lies In Wait!!

Share This Post

During these cold Winter months this invasive species, Japanese Knotweed, lies in wait to suprise unspecting home owners.

Japanese Knotweed goes into dormancy throughout the winter period. This is typically between (November-April). The characteristics bears resemblance to bamboo, which has brittle & brown  canes- hence why many homeowners are lured into a false sense of security, thinking the plant is dead (and that’s assuming homeowners know what it is in the first place!!!)


The rhizome of this invasive plant is still alive and well…. merely waiting to make a grand entrance when the sun starts to warm our skin through May – October.
