Luckily Knotweed does not produce seed in the UK

Taking advantage of a rare day of fine weather, today we tried to check progress on as many of our existing sites as possible.

Despite a full day of driving around South Wales, we only managed to look at 10 sites where we has started treatment in 2011.

The results were however, way beyond expectation;

After only one treatment in 2011, we were delighted to find that four sites had NO regrowth whatsoever while the remainder had thrown up between 2 to 6 small stems each which we happily re-treated.

Roll on the next dry day!

 

 

Because householders are often out, this year we now have postcards which we can leave to let clients know we had called.

    Thanks, yours was one of the sites that really impressed us how effective out first treatment had been.
    Last year the whole garden was covered with a dense 9ft high mass of Knotweed. This Spring only a handful of weak shoots have appeared and have been promptly dealt with.
    We will check again in a couple of months and catch any re-growth.
