What is Japanese knotweed?
Japanese knotweed is an invasive non-native species which was brought to Britain as an ornamental garden plant in the mid-nineteenth century. However since then it has become widespread in the wild and causes serious problems by displacing native flora and causing structural damage to buildings and walls.
