Half a mile from Dunton in direction of A413 on left verge

Reported in the Weed problem on the highway category anonymously at 13:28, Wed 22 April 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

There are 3 patches of Japanese Knotweed on the roadside, two were sprayed 2 years ago, but have regrown. The largest patch (picture2) is easiest to locate as there is a large fairly dead patch where the Knotweed was last treated, but there is now new growth around it and some in the original site. The 2nd patch is about 58metres towards the A413 from the largest patch (pic 3) very close to the edge of the road. The 3rd patch is 10metres towards Dunton from the large patch, but is approx. 2metres back from the road in amongst brambles (pic 1)

  • About two weeks ago the knotweed was treated and almost immediately it died back and was completely brown and dry, however in the past few days it has sprouted once again and in parts is very vigorous once again. I don't know if this is what is expected to happen, but when it was treated several years ago it died off more slowly, but did not re-sprout until the following year. Sorry to bother you with this again, but I have no way of knowing if the treatment is as it should be or not.
