Japanese knotweed shoots & Mower contamination ?

Posted: 16/04/2014 at 09:43

Thanks all. I am now very convinced that the photos above are bindweed, however on a less positive note, we have also definitely found knotweed on another part of the garden

I've been reading up on it and is the concensus that it is better to treat with glyphosate repeatedly rather than trying to dig it up? Currently the shoots are only a few inches high and still red. Is it best to treat while it is so small?

Thanks - I'm hoping that you are correct (unless of course that is also a problem plant!)

Hi

 

I have recently taken over my aging aunts garden responsibilities. I think I may have been mowing over Japanese knotweed shoots. I have since used the same soiled mower/strimmer etc on my garden.

 

Is this a big mistake or can you uses the same tools mowers etc without cross contamination?

 

Thanks
