Japanese Knotweed
By Jane Collins


July 28, 2010

I have had this awful weed behind my shoe shop here in Northampton, UK for the last 4-5 years if not longer. It will NOT go away, despite everything I try to do. We are now using a powerful chemical that my husband uses on his farm to see if does the trick so it is just a matter of waiting to see the result.

I have been in touch with my local council with no luck. I cannot afford to employ any specialist help - so in a word, HELP!!
