Knotweed in Kent

Kent is traditionally known as ‘The Garden of England’ because of the abundance of fruit growing and hop gardens. Twenty-eight per cent of the county forms part of two areas of outstanding natural beauty – the North Downs and The Weald. A place of such beauty should not be overcome by vicious weeds such as Japanese Knotweed.

Japanese Knotweed

Knotweed has a variety of different names – you could also know it as monkeyweed, monkey fungus, Japanese bamboo, American bamboo and Mexican bamboo. Knotweed can often resemble bamboo and be overlooked but don’t let this stubborn weed fool you. The tiniest piece can re-grow and spread by both natural means and by human activity. It can quickly overrun riverbanks, railway embankments, road verges, gardens and hedgerows, threatening the survival of other native plant species and in turn insects and other animal species.
