Lillies  The white regale. Amazing scent in the evening. No scent but definitely glow...Zantedeschia aethopica (think I spelt that right) Crambe cordifolia if you have the space. Huge cabbage plant but the smell is almost overwhelming. Pinks but not lol. Some of the white dianthus smell beautiful. Sure will think of more later

Unfortunately not Patty. Not classed as a notifiable weed just have to dispose of it properly. 

Japanese Knotweed

...."It spreads through its crown, rhizome (underground stem) and stem segments, rather than its seeds. The weed can grow a metre in a month and can cause heave below concrete and tarmac, coming up through the resulting cracks and damaging buildings and roads. Studies have shown that a 1cm section of rhizome can produce a new plant in 10 days. Rhizome segments can remain dormant in soil for twenty years before producing new plants.".....

...."Environmental Protection Act 1990
Japanese Knotweed is classed as ‘controlled waste’ and as such must be disposed of safely at a licensed landfill site according to the Environmental Protection Act (Duty of Care) Regulations 1991. Soil containing rhizome material can be regarded as contaminated and, if taken off a site, must be disposed of at a suitably licensed landfill site and buried to a depth of at least 5 m.".....
