Government Inquiry to review impact of Japanese knotweed

Concern about the menace posed by Japanese knotweed has prompted the Science and Technology Committee to call an inquiry into the impact of the plant on the built environment. Experts, including our own founder and MD Nic Seal, will be submitting evidence in the next few weeks, along with members of the public who have been affected by the plant.

Nic’s book promotions pick up pace!

It’s been a whirlwind November of book promotions for our MD Nic Seal, following the publication of his definitive guide to knotweed, ‘Japanese Knotweed: Unearthing the Truth’ this summer.

We’re delighted to say that the book has generated a huge amount of interest from gardeners, homeowners and people generally wanting to arm themselves with the facts about knotweed.
