Environet's Reflection on 2016

Another year has passed, making it over 20 years that we've now been in business.  

We've continued to grow, not only on the knotweed front. I'm pleased to say two of our employees have given birth this year, so we now have two beautiful babies being trained up on how best to tackle knotweed. There must be something in the air, as a further two employees are expecting babies in 2017, congratulations to all of them.

“Helloweed” - trick or treat time for Japanese knotweed

Trick or treat - don't be fooled, Japanese knotweed is still alive.

It's Halloween again that time of year in the knotweed calendar marking the conclusion of what many people think is the end of the knotweed treatment season. It’s true enough that the knotweed is preparing for its winter dormancy period, where the leaves go yellow and fall, leaving brittle hollow canes, tricking people into thinking the knotweed has at long last died. Of course it’s just disguised as dead, with healthy underground orange rhizomes the colour of pumpkins.

The Business Magazine: ‘Environet warns about Japanese knotweed’

Published on 11th October 2016 on The Business Magazine website.

A property owner was planning to start work on an extension to the back of his house, when an infestation of Japanese knotweed was discovered in his garden. Not only had the knotweed been previously unsuccessfully treated with herbicides, causing new stunted growth which cannot be treated again herbicides; but the tenants had mowed the original area of knotweed, spreading it to other parts of the garden.

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.
