Is there a lot of Japanese knotweed in Cornwall?
Yes, Japanese knotweed is a widespread problem in Cornwall. And you don't have to take our word for it - the Cornwall Council website says the same thing:
"In Cornwall, Japanese knotweed has become widespread. It is a significant problem making it difficult to restore or develop land. It spreads very easily from tiny parts of the plant and it is very difficult to control."
Falmouth, Penzance and St Austell are among Cornwall's main Japanese knotweed hotspots. The plant is particularly common around rivers and railway lines, but one of the reasons why knotweed has become such a big problem is that it can thrive in all sorts of different places, even if growing conditions are less than ideal.
