A study conducted by a team of Swansea University scientists has come across a rare Japanese knotweed hybrid near Cardiff.

The knotweed cross-breed is commonly known as Connolly’s knotweed – a blend of traditional Japanese knotweed and similar-looking plant, Russian vine.

While Connelly’s knotweed is fairly rare on UK soil, records have shown a rise in prominence of the rare plant across continental Europe.

With this emergence in South Wales comes growing concerns that Britain’s knotweed problem could get worse.

Problem Might Get Worse

The study was part of a larger investigation conducted by Swansea University College of Science conducted over the course of eight years.

The thorough examination into the knotweed problem also included the world’s largest Japanese knotweed field trial.

According to Swansea University’s Sophie Hocking, the PhD student leading the Japanese knotweed study, had this to say:

“If future climatic conditions become favourable for these seeds to germinate successfully, our Japanese knotweed problem might get worse.

A seed bank full of hybrid knotweed could mean a second wave of invasion following treatment of the initial problem.”

 

Take Action Early

With scientific evidence posing a grim update into the growing Japanese knotweed issue nationwide, the UK’s on-going battle with the villainous vine proves to be far from over.

While the impact of this latest discovery remains to be seen, the importance of taking eradicative action on Japanese knotweed upon discovery has never been more evident.

Early discovery and early attention can help minimise the issue and limit the damage caused by the unwelcome guest.

Over the last month, it’s come to light that the Environmental Agency and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) have come up with a helpful and proactive way of tackling the growing Japanese knotweed problem in the UK.

As part of a conscious effort to monitor and reduce the implications of Japanese knotweed across the country, the EA and DEFRA have suggested the implementation of a national database to track the plants reach and whereabouts, as well as monitoring its subsequent effects on house prices.

Plant Tracking

The move comes as a result of findings reported by the Science and Technology Committee, highlighting the impact the invasive plant can have on properties across the UK.

However, this latest step isn’t the first time the Environmental Agency’s first foray into Japanese knotweed monitoring territory.

The Environment Agency had previously attempted to track the reach of the naughty knot with its PlantTracker app, commissioned back in 2012.

The original app aimed to utilise crowd-sourcing as a means of creating a national database; however, it was removed from due to funding issues and development problems.

 

Mapping it Out

While other independent companies have attempted to chart the knotweed problem in recent years, this new government-led initiative could well be the comprehensive map the general public has needed.

The Environment Agency is set to consult with major national Japanese knotweed removal firms to explore the practicalities of assembling a database and assimilate how these third parties could contribute.

The government has confirmed that the EA will meet with both the Property Care Association and Invasive Non-Native Specialists Association (INNSA) to begin this process in early autumn 2019.

As part of the government’s deep-dive into the Japanese knotweed issue, the EA and DEFRA aim to look into the issue extensively over the coming months, with their findings set to be published by March 2020.

 

Japanese Knotweed Treatment

While the move by the government is reassuring news for the future of (or lack thereof) of Japanese knotweed in the UK, the process is still likely to be a slow and laborious one that’s of little help to anyone already plighted by the wicked weed.

If you are currently suffering from the ill-effects of Japanese knotweed or believe your property may well be under invasion from the Asian vegetation, why not drop us a line today?

Recent research has uncovered some insightful stats regarding the Japanese knotweed in the UK, which could pose a worry to homeowners in Wales and the West. In this blog, we talk about some of the most serious Japanese knotweed hotspots along the west coast.

According to House Beautiful, Wales and Bristol are particularly problematic areas for Japanese Knotweed, making up two of the top three worst-affected regions in the UK. While Bolton tops the list, Bristol isn’t far behind with over 100,000 active cases of Japanese knotweed

A further article by Wales Online noted that “The Land of my Fathers” is particularly impacted by the vine from “The Land of the Rising Sun”, with areas like Llanelli, Caerphilly and Swansea all clocking in at well over 300 cases of JKW infestation.

“A Major Problem Across the UK”

Japanese knotweed expert, Nic Seal, noted that “Japanese knotweed has become a major problem across the UK, with areas of industrial heritage such as North Wales particularly badly affected”.

The Welsh government website also notes that, while spread throughout Wales, Japanese knotweed hotspots most commonly appear on sites that are disturbed by human activity such as railway lines, rubbish tips, old allotments, derelict land.

This fact was reinforced by the recent story of Network Rail having a myriad of issues with Japanese knotweed infestations on their land nationwide. If you happen to live in one of the Japanese knotweed hotspots we've described, or an area characterised by these traits - vigilance is key to keeping it under control. 

 

Japanese Knotweed Surveys

Mr Seal went on to mention that “Anyone thinking about buying a property in or around these hotspots would be wise to (…) consider instructing a specialist to carry out a Japanese knotweed survey on the property to check for evidence of the plant.” Better safe than sorry, right?

However, that advice isn’t strictly reserved for buyers. Homeowners in Japanese knotweed hotspots that suspect they may have Japanese knotweed on their property could also benefit greatly from a Japanese knotweed survey. Early detection could make all the difference!

A row of terraced houses

Selling a house whose garden is infested with Japanese knotweed is a tricky proposition. Japanese knotweed can have a big impact on the value of a property, and make your home considerably less desirable in the eyes of potential buyers.

It may be tempting to just play dumb and pretend you're unaware of the invasive species in your back garden, but if you conceal the fact that there is Japanese knotweed on a property you're selling, you may be breaking the law.

Whether you're a homeowner or an estate agent, here are some tips to help you complete the sale AND stay on the right side of the law.

 

First, make sure it actually IS Japanese knotweed.

If you think there's Japanese knotweed on a property you're trying to sell, your first course of action should be to call an expert.

Note that Japanese knotweed looks quite similar to a number of other plants and weeds - including bindweed, Russian vine, broadleaf dock and ground elder - so we recommend contacting a Japanese knotweed specialist and asking them to carry out a survey of your property.

An experienced professional will be able to confirm whether or not you have a Japanese knotweed problem and advise you on what to do next.

READ MORE: How to Identify Japanese Knotweed

 

Be honest.

Japanese knotweed isn't technically classified as a 'notifiable weed', but since 2013, the Law Society's TA6 form includes a specific question on the subject of Japanese knotweed. Failure to disclose information relating to a knotweed infestation on your property can be deemed a breach of Consumer Protection Rights regulations.

Naturally, such a transgression can have legal ramifications, providing solid grounds for misrepresentation and potentially leaving you open to a lawsuit. So it's best to be honest and upfront about the issue during the entire selling process.

 

Look for a guarantee.

If it turns out that you do indeed have Japanese knotweed on your property, it's important to take action as soon as possible. The longer you leave it, the worse the problem get.

Mortgage lenders can be extremely hesitant to lend the full amount if a property has Japanese knotweed, mainly because the plant can affect the building's structural integrity. However, lenders can be persuaded - you just need to take a proactive approach.

We recommend finding a Japanese knotweed removal specialist who offers a Japanese knotweed guarantee, i.e. a warranty that will safeguard you in the event that the infestation should return after treatment.

If you can demonstrate that appropriate removal measures have been implemented, this will potentially convince mortgage lenders to overlook the fact that you have Japanese knotweed on your property (or at last lead them to be more sympathetic to your situation).

Don't expect a quick fix.

Japanese knotweed control can be a lengthy process - several visits will be required, and a complete course of treatment often takes around three years. If you want to maximise your home's value, you may want to refrain from selling until after your knotweed problem has been eradicated.

That being said, if you really are in a rush to sell your house despite the presence of Japanese knotweed, you may be forced to take a hit on the sale price in exchange for speed of the sale. This might mean that lenders are put off, in which case you'll have to take the cash buyer route; as a result, you could see the sale price drop by up to 20% below market value.

 

Call the professionals.

Essentially, if you're serious about selling a house that has Japanese knotweed (and you don't fancy dealing with a lawsuit or slashing your sale price), your best option is to call in the pros and get to the root of the problem.

Here at Taylor Total Weed Control, we specialise in Japanese knotweed removal and have over 15 years' experience under our belts. For a long-term solution with an insurance-backed guarantee, Japanese knotweed removal from Taylor Weed Control is the smart choice for you and your property.

An investigation by The Times has revealed some incredible news regarding Network Rail and an apparent ongoing issue with Japanese knotweed.

According to The Times, Network Rail has received around 11,000 complaints about Japanese knotweed since 2011, equating to an average of 1375 knotweed complaints a year.

Worse still, over half of these complaints were regarding the spread of knotweed from the railways onto nearby homeowners’ private properties.

 

network rail, Japanese knotweed news

 

Impact on Surrounding Properties

The state-owned firm is responsible for maintaining the railways and adjoining land, which includes the containment of weed infestations like Japanese knotweed.

Japanese knotweed is notorious for its invasive attributes and can have a serious impact on a property in terms of its structural integrity, commonly targeting weak points in the sub-structure through cracks and openings.

The alleged lack of treatment by Network Rail has reportedly made it considerably more difficult for thousands of affected homeowners to sell their properties as a result of the knotweed making its way onto their properties.

 

"We Should Do More"

While the story does certainly paint Network Rail in a negative light, representatives for the railway authority are quick to refute the claims of negligence.

However, despite their rebuttal, they also concede that they could do more. Following the revelations, Environment Manager at Network Rail, Neil Strong, had this to say:

“While we meet our legislative obligations, we believe we should do more. We will always treat any knotweed area flagged to us and are working on enhancing our guidance and protocols to be in line with Property Care Association published codes of practice and thus give the assurance mortgage lenders are looking for.”

 

Professional Knotweed Removal

Regardless of who’s to blame and what’s been done, there’s no denying that Network Rail’s apparent issues with Japanese knotweed have them in quite a bind, both figuratively and literally.

If you suspect Japanese knotweed is present on your property, don’t allow your property to get side tracked like Network Rail. Leaving the dreaded vine to its own devices can allow your JKW infestation to build up a serious head of steam.

Luckily, here at Taylor Weed Control, we thrive on untangling the messiest of knotweed nuisances. Our first-class team of garden experts have over 15 years’ experience and are more than able to help you get your garden back on track.

Don’t let Japanese knotweed send you off the rails. Give your knotweed woes a one-way ticket out of town with weed eradication services from Taylor Weed Control.

A couple from Yardley Wood in Birmingham have become “prisoners in their own home” after a Japanese knotweed infestation quite literally took over their back garden.

As reported in the Birmingham Mail, Chris and Marie Moore have endured “five years of hell” in their council home.

The couple has been forced to helplessly watch the rapid recession of their garden, as Japanese knotweed has slowly but surely overthrown their outdoor space.

Despite having a 70ft garden, the knotweed has eaten up over 60ft of space, rendering their external property virtually useless. The problem has become so bad that the couple can’t even hang their washing out to dry.

A Formidable Foe

The couple has been at the property for 18 years; however, the problem arose five years ago when Mr Moore first spotted the curious vine sticking up from the ground behind his shed.

Without knowing its evil identity, Mr Moore logically decided to cut it back in an effort to nip it in the bud. Unfortunately for the Moores, the mysterious plant didn’t take too kindly to its unsolicited trim and came back fighting.

The vine has since claimed the garden for itself and, despite multiple visits and treatments from Birmingham City Council, the unwavering weed has proved to be a formidable foe that simply doesn’t want to budge.

Even hundreds of pounds worth of store-bought weed-killer administered by Mr Moore wouldn’t touch the vicious vine and the garden has now become a jungle that could easily play host to a scene from Predator.

 

Professional Weed Killer Services

Sadly, while a visit from Arnie and his crack team of special ops commandos may be able to fend off an otherworldly creature, they wouldn’t do much good in ridding the property of the notoriously durable knotweed.

Luckily, there are plenty of professional options available for the Moores if they wanted to rid their property of the knotweed once and for all. While it may seem like an impossible task, professional knotweed removal is the most effective solution to this issue.

Okay, we know what you’re thinking: "How could I possibly benefit from Japanese knotweed on my property?" After all, Japanese knotweed has earned itself a reputation as Britain’s most hated plant – and rightfully so.

Notorious for its negative impact on properties nationwide – including the ability to drive down house value – the earthy invader from Asia is about as welcome as a pimple on prom night.

That being said, even the worst offenders can have a glimmer of light in their blackened souls and Japanese knotweed is no different.

5 Benefits of Japanese Knotweed

Japanese knotweed can wreak havoc on your property, causing untold damage to structural foundations if left to grow and develop. That part is no secret.

That being said, the vexatious vine does pose some surprising upsides, particularly in the realms of healthcare and alternative medicine.

Japanese knotweed is a great source of resveratrol, as well as being a healthy source vitamin A and C, potassium, phosphorus, zinc and manganese.

As a result, Japanese knotweed has shown to have some interesting benefits. Here are five beneficial perks of Japanese knotweed when implemented into diet and nutrition.

 

Blood Pressure

Japanese knotweed can have a positive impact on blood flow by contributing to better vasodilation of the arteries.

By modulating blood pressure, the reduction in strain and stress can thereby contribute to better cardiac health. Which brings us nicely to our next perk…

 

Heart Disease

Poor diet and unhealthy meal choices can inevitably lead to complications down the line, with heart disease a notable consequence of this.

The resveratrol in Japanese knotweed is said to help lessen the effects of heart disease with its cardioprotective qualities, most notably in those with diabetes. Speaking of diabetes…

 

Diabetes

In addition to contributing to heart health for diabetics, Japanese knotweed can also have a direct effect on insulin absorption.

Resveratrol has been known to help prevent insulin resistance, acting as a blood sugar regulator. For those that suffer from blood sugar related issues, this can be invaluable.

 

Digestive Health

Japanese knotweed is also said to have a positive effect on gastrointestinal ailments, such as constipation, contributing to digestive health and regularity.

Resveratrol is said to soothe abdominal stress with its natural laxative properties, providing relief from issues including stomach cramps and bloating.

 

Cognitive Disorders

Perhaps the most renowned health benefit of Japanese knotweed is its positive effect on cognitive health.

Resveratrol has been shown to have a preventative impact on neurodegenerative illnesses such as Alzheimer’s and dementia, making JKW a supremely beneficial plant for brain health.

 

Additional Benefits

In addition to the aforementioned health perks, Japanese knotweed is also used for the treatment of oral ailments, like sore throats, gingivitis and even plaque build-up on teeth.

Meanwhile, it’s also commonly used for respiratory issues, such as lung disease, bronchitis and persistent coughs, as well as certain skin disorders.

While Japanese knotweed is always first to grab the negative headlines when it comes to destructive garden weeds, the last month has seen a rise in cases of its often-overlooked offspring, Bohemian knotweed.

Despite being less famous than its Asian counterpart, Bohemian knotweed can be just as destructive, if not more so.

To spare your home life from this monstrosity, here’s a quick overview to help keep your property free of this horticultural horror.

 

bohemian knotweed, hybrid knotweed, japanese knotweed

 

What is Bohemian Knotweed?

Also known as Hybrid knotweed, the Bohemian version is the result of cross-fertilisation between Japanese knotweed and giant knotweed.

Much like the Japanese and giant varieties, Bohemian knotweed spreads rapidly through its rhizome network, with the ability to cause untold damage to buildings and residential properties.

As such, it’s important to catch it early and begin treatment as soon as its presence is detected.

 

Any Way the Wind Blows

While it may be lesser-known than its infamous parents, Dr Peter Fitzsimons of the PCA’s Invasive Weed Control Group notes that hybrid plants can be even more harmful than the parent plant.

Bohemian knotweed is no exception to this rule and has the potential to be a cause for concern.

“In other parts of the world where Hybrid knotweed is more common, they are seeing signs of fertile seed production,” says Fitzsimons. “The existence of seed-producing hybrid knotweeds may enable these plants to spread even more rapidly.”

 

Another One Bites the Dust

Much like Japanese knotweed and giant knotweed, Bohemian knotweed is listed under Schedule 9 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act.

While it can be disruptive around buildings and potentially have a negative effect on mortgages and house price, it can be controlled using established techniques and processes.

At Taylor Weed Control, we specialise in weed removal and have over 15 years of industry experience. No job is too big for our team of trained weed removal specialists!

If you believe you have a knotweed problem on your property, don’t wait until it’s too late. Call Taylor Weed Control now and untangle your knotweed problem today.

Okay, right off the bat let’s start by saying that there’s never a “good time” to find Japanese knotweed on your property.

A major pest of Mother Nature, this vexatious vine can wreak havoc on your homestead and cause serious structural damage from beneath the surface.

That being said, there are better times than others when it comes to treating it and keeping it under control. This blog aims to help you with just that.

So, clear your diary and save the date: it’s time to vine and dine with Japanese knotweed.

Treating Japanese Knotweed Organically

Japanese knotweed can spread through your garden like a campus cold during Freshers week. As such, quite literally nipping it in the bud can save you untold headaches down the line.

That being said, like most garden activities, there are certain times of the year that are better than others when it comes to ensuring the most effective treatment.

If you’re looking to go the non-chemical route, there are a variety of options and techniques you could explore. Here are a few suggestions along with the best times to go about it.

 

Pulling/Digging

For smaller populations that are new to your property and not yet made themselves at home, hand removal is a viable option during the growing season.

Break up the soil around the rhizome with a fork or shovel and haul that weed out of its freshly loosened liar.

 

Smothering

Smothering is a better option for larger patches of knotweed that are more well-established; however, it’s by no means a quick-fix. In fact, this technique can literally take years to achieve the desired effect.

Cut the stems as low as possible and cover with heavy-duty black plastic. If the resulting aesthetic is unsightly, cover with a further layer of mulch to mask the plastic’s appearance.

This route is most effective when implemented during the early summertime. During this period, the surrounding plants will be at the height of their growth, exhausting some of the rhizome’s reserves.

 

Treating Japanese Knotweed with Herbicides

If the softly, softly approach isn’t working and you’re looking for a less subtle way of banishing your knotweed nightmares from whence they came, herbicides provide the heavy artillery.

Japanese knotweed controls its nutrients in line with the seasons: during the spring and early summer, it channels its nutrients upward from the roots to the shoots, while it does the opposite during the late summer and autumn in preparation for winter.

For the best results, it’s wise to apply your herbicide at the end of the summer prior to the wintry weather kicking in, taking advantage of the natural downward flow of the plant's nutrients.

 

Professional Japanese Knotweed Treatment

Regardless of which option you choose, Japanese knotweed is a formidable foe and one that shouldn’t be taken lightly.

If you really are serious about giving ridding your property of knotweed in an effective manner that limits the possibility of a return, it’s wise to consider calling in the professionals.

At Taylor Weed Control, we specialise in Japanese knotweed removal and offer a wide range of services to ensure your weedy woes are stopped dead in their tracks.

With over 15 years’ experience, we’ve seen it all and lived to tell the tale – the same can’t be said for the knotweed we’ve met along the way.

Japanese knotweed

Can you get in trouble with the law if you have Japanese knotweed in your garden? Well, no - it is not against the law to have Japanese knotweed on your property, and you are not obliged to remove the plant if you don't wish to.

However, the law does say that you MUST NOT allow Japanese knotweed to spread into the wild. If you break this law, you may be fined up to £5,000 or even imprisoned for up to 2 years.

Also, if there is Japanese knoweed on your property, it is your responsibility to make sure that it doesn't encroach on any neighbouring properties. Your neighbour can take legal action if they have reason to believe that you have allowed this to happen. (For more information, see What to Do If Your Neighbour Has Japanese Knotweed.)

Therefore, if you do notice Japanese knotweed is growing on your property, it is important that you put a proper treatment plan in place.

SEE ALSO: Do I Have to Report Japanese Knotweed?

 

Japanese Knotweed Treatment

The most effective way to treat Japanese knotweed involves the use of pesticides. If you choose this treatment method, you are bound by The Control of Pesticides Regulations 1986 to ensure that all the necessary precautions are taken to protect other human beings, animals and plant life.

No specific qualifications are required to treat Japanese knotweed on your own property; however, applying pesticides correctly can be quite difficult for a gardening novice. If the Japanese knotweed is in a high-traffic family garden or close to an open water source, it can be hard to gauge how much pesticide you can safely use.

Here at Taylor Total Weed Control, we always recommend leaving Japanese knotweed removal to the professionals. We have been dealing with this invasive plant for years, so we know how to get the job done quickly and efficiently without damaging the surrounding environment.

There are Japanese knotweed laws in place to make sure that people treating knotweed commercially have the necessary Japanese knotweed eradication certificate. Companies offering a professional knotweed removal service must be certified to use, supply and store the specialist agricultural pesticides required for effective treatment. Operatives must also be properly trained in the application of these pesticides.

If a knotweed removal company employs an individual who doesn't have the proper Japanese knotweed qualifications, that person can be supervised by a more senior member of staff (someone who does have their Japanese knotweed eradication certificate). The conditions of this require that they must remain in view and be able to hear their supervisor's instructions at all times.

 

Our Japanese Knotweed Qualifications

As one of the leading Japanese knotweed removal companies in South Wales, we hold a number of industry-recognised accreditations. All of our invasive species specialists are properly trained and fully qualified to deal with your knotweed while following the law.
