this sort of growth is known as 'Hen and Chickens',
Why do you think it's knotweed Caroline? It looks very woody shrub-like in the photo.
How much of you garden has it taken over?
I'm using Ronseal one coat shed and fence paint on my shed project. Water based so not likely to leak fumes. It' s covering well, time will tell how long it lasts
looks good. might have to get OH to weld on something to put a foot on for extra force though
We've got a lot of Silver Y's, 24 hours a day. they flutter around buddleia and all their other favourites
it is amazing 4th Panda, it likes ceratostigma which is outside the french doors and gets sun at dinner time so we can sit and watch the visitors
the hummingbird hawkmoth has visited, I'd nearly given up hope
Outdoor girls link suggests it's not too much of a problem. Most galls aren't
That family is a bit too spiney. I don't like to handle borage bare-handed either. And brunnera is a bit scrapey.
I have a lot of galls but that's a new one for me. My walnut has something to look forward to
