With the long and cold winter of 2017/2018, the growing season for Japanese Knotweed has been delayed. We would normally see the growth of Knotweed sometime in March but this year, the growing season was delayed to the first days of sunshine in early to mid April.

We decided to document the growth of one particular infestation to demonstrate just how quickly Japanese Knotweed grows.
