Is this Japanese Knotweed?

Posted: 02/11/2017 at 09:14

I still think it's something in the persicaria family, which JKW belongs to, but I'd wait for the expert to tell you. I have several sorts of persicaria in my garden but not JKW.

I loved Jane Eyre. How could you dislike Dickens and the Brontes with a vengeance? Dickens brought to people's attention the state of the poor as well as being good tales.

I enjoyed reading about where you are, Obelixx. When we were in St Sebastian you could order sides of vegetables or a salad.


Mucked out the winter field shelter this afternoon. It's now ready for a hay delivery. Also sowed broad beans in pots. Haven't done it before, they are in the GH. When I sow them outside here they don't usually survive the winter, too cold and/or wet. More extreme here than England.

If your neighbours have a Japanese Knotweed problem then I fear the plant in the 3rd photo could be knotweed, not certain though. Good that a specialist is coming. Shame about your buyer, hope you find another one soon.

Asparagus planting - bury gradually or straight away?

I've never built up gradually either. My asparagus bed kept going for over 17 years then bindweed got in.

Sweet Peas

It's a shame about the main old sweet pea thread. The expert who gave lots of advice left the forum and all his posts were deleted.


Good luck with your sweet peas.

None in the first 2 photos. Not sure about the third, looks a bit like a sort of persicaria which is the family to which Japanese knotweed belongs. But there are many different sorts. Why do you ask? Have the neighbours got knotweed?

Morning all.


Exciting time for Chicky, I hope she has a lovely visit.


Another frost -2°. Must clear the rest of the summer bedding out of the pots and re plant them. Bit short of compost and the SM had run out.
