autumn weeds

Gardening is a job that needs to be done all year round. If you take your foot off the gas in the autumn months, you can guarantee you'll have a jungle on your hands by the time it comes round to spring.

is moss dangerous

Gardeners across the UK will understand how difficult it is to prevent moss from appearing in your garden, but is moss dangerous? The short answer is no. Unlike fungus, moss does not produce spores or poisons that are dangerous to humans. So what's the problem with it?

South Yorkshire tops the list with a five-year increase of 77.19%, just ahead of Hampshire (+73.24%) and West Sussex (+72.22%).

And Japanese knotweed isn't just spreading fast in England. The top ten list also includes two Welsh regions: Powys (+61.93%) and Cardiff (+53.01%). There are currently hundreds of confirmed cases in both areas.
