that explains that then swiss sue once met a tree feller from Switzerland in 2009 the bad winter or so called big freeze he had been working hear in England up north drove down from Scotland in the snow and ice  in a unimog truck [in less than a day cant remember  total time] had made the unimog  in to a camper van whilst working over here made us English look like wimps and our country came to stand  still at first sign of freezeing  weather

still seams to be the devil plant everywhere then

have had dealings with this japanese  knot weed or should I say the bungalow next door to me has after long talks with the shelter house group it has now been removed only taken about 25 years to get rid of it and even now we still not convinced,  they spray the younger growth with a very strong herbicide after cutting the older growth down it has also ment they have had to replace the main sewer running through the garden aswell because of the root damage to the pipes in the garden that then lead to a rat problem which has now been sorted aswell, I did do some very interesting research in to this problem before and armed with piles of papers and information I got from internet I contacted the parties involed  now a few fact I can tell you is you only need a peace of root half the sizes of your little finger nail to fall on the ground and u will be face with this problem also to dispose of  any waste from this plant without a waste transfer lic or declared as contaminate waste if court or reported u will face court action and face a fine or prison I did fined some useful information on youtube about removable and facts just put in Japanese knot weed removal this weed can cause damage to building and footpaths  which can lead to a costly bill if found to be in your grounds and you could be face with a bill for the repair. sadly 2 of the ladies who lived in the bungalow died so they did not fine out what the outcome of this problem was and gave them both a lot of worry for the years they lived there is also a problem with this along riverbanks and railway lines where people have fly tip their remains the root can travel up to 6m from any one stem therefore if to bigger problem will result in a very large digger digging a hole as I have seen on a construction site for a new supper market not far from where I live

hi after events across the country this week and in north Norfolk can anyone give me some advices about lawns and beds we have had about 4ft to 6ft of sea water in places flooding of homes destroyed,now the clean up has begun what can we do to the less affected homes to give them back there gardens that took the battering over the past few days have seen some really unbelievable sites that could take months or a year or more that makes this pointless but some very lucky escapes that few hours will put right  and help rebuild these homes in the villages affected
