Japanese knotweed in the winter - dead canes

Japanese knotweed growing season ends as winter approaches

It is that time of year again when Japanese knotweed is dying away ready to spread its damage again in the spring.

Although still standing the bamboo-like canes will soon be brown, brittle and inert eventually decomposing over time. However, the rhizome system beneath the ground is still very much alive, waiting to emerge, bigger and stronger, with new shoots next March and April.

Eco Innovation Awards Scheme

Environet launches 'Schools Eco-Innovation Awards Scheme'

We are delighted to launch the new Environet ' Schools Eco-Innovation Awards' Scheme, supported by Kevin McCloud, MBE.

We have sponsored this scheme to encourage children with dyslexia and other learning difficulties to identify a problem and come up with an innovative design solution which improves the environment. The scheme is being piloted at The Moat School, London and will be extended to other schools across the country.
