About Japanese knotweed
Originating from the volcanic regions of Japan, Japanese knotweed (Fallopia japonica) is a giant weed that thrives on disturbance. It uses this attribute to spread down watercourses, along transport routes and onto wasteland.
The plant itself is a perennial. Consequently, it will re-establish itself year after year and spreads via an extensive underground rhizome (root) system. This can grow underground for up to 7 metres laterally and 3 metres in depth according to Environment Agency guidelines. It then uses this root system to grow up in other places.
