Gayle i don't think the council will get rid of it for you, if it's in your garden it's your responsibility. As mentioned in the other repiles when you sell a property  with knotweed you have to by law let the buyer know about it. I realy hope you can destroy it. Good luck.

I went round to my friends house and she proudly showed me her tomato plants that a friend had given her, They looked realy lush and healthy, she then said " i have been pinching all the flowers out". She couldn't understand why i was laughing, i had to explian that she obviously wasn't listening to her freind when she told her to pinch out the side shoots. Silly girl

 It's funny watching them on the salvias they work their way up the flower like going up an helter skelter.

 Not sure if you can spot the bee on this one, not the pot with the dailia, but front of photo is flower spikes of hecura plum pudding the flowers are tiny but the bees love them.It's a good foliage plant and bee freindly to

bees also on snapdragon, verbenas, foxgloves, hardy geraniumns, sweet rocket,

Japanese Knotweed

Very interesting comments. We have two large areas of it on our family owned land where i have my allotment. One area my brother in law has been cutting down for the last two years. It has become a lot weaker  with constant cutting. the other area i have started on this year, it's difficult to chop as it's on a streep slope. We are thinking of using weedkiller . Swiss Sue how much leaf was on yours when you sprayed it? I have heard about injecting the stems but we have so much of it!  If we could get rid of it i would like to replant like a wild flower meadow but i don't know how long it will take or if it will come back. ITS THE WORST WEED ANYONE CAN HAVE!
