Good day to you , Could this be the dreaded Japanese Knottweed ? it is about 7ft high and about 3ft deep and 13ft wide. It is next door but one to me.




Oh! I’m afraid it sure does look like it, poor you, you need to send a pic to the authorities, it needs to be sorted, they will send someone round to check it out, you have to report it this as it could travel into your garden, also you would not be able to sell a house that has it till all has got rid of, I would ring them quickly.

Yes, sadly I think you are right. It does look like it.
Google it to see what courses of action are open to you.

Thankyou for your replies. I shall tell my immediate neighbour what he needs to do. I will let you know in due course what action has been taken. Kind regards, Loupylou
