The Nature Conservation Minister has announced initiatives to crackdown on the illegal introduction of alien plants into this country - but is this too little too late?

Many voracious plants are already here and causing major problems. Their control and eradication needs to be carefully planned, monitored and managed to ensure the existing situation of their overpowering invasion is met full on and stemmed.

It is already illegal to plant Japanese Knotweed and Giant Hogweed which strangle and suffocate other plants, but a ban on many others is also needed - plants such as Himalayan Balsam, Floating Pennywort, Crassula helmsii and Azolla filiculoides now common to water and river banks, but also Rhododendron ponticum, an evergreen weed, which grows densely and quickly smothering many plants that is very difficult to control.


Many of these plants were introduced in Victorian times with no idea that these foreign plants might escape over the garden wall. JapaneseKnotweed is proving to be one of the most pernicious, non-native species, with an estimated clean-up bill in excess of £1.56 billion; with all these other weeds increasing exponentially, the clean-up bill for problem weeds in total is likely to be significantly higher.

Don't forget - Japanese Knotweed:

  • Do not - cut, scythe, flail, mow or disturb the ground
  • The use of equipment that is likely to result in further spread of Japanese must ALWAYS be avoided.
