The weed cover just over the barrier was so great; it proved nigh on impossible. Apparently due to financial cuts but surely something needs to be done. We need to get our politicians focussed on the importance of weed control for safety and health reasons if nothing else.
Also over the weekend went to a neighbour’s house and heard a sorry tale about invasive weeds. Apparently they had identified Japanese Knotweed in their garden about a year ago and called in a contractor who apparently just chopped it down. It has now returned more vigorously than ever. Having contacted a professional Amenity Assured contractor they discover chopping down in the way he did was entirely wrong and apparently he took away the debris spreading it to others. The approved contractor injected the Knotweed with glyphosate and the issue is now sorted for them. Lesson learnt – cheapest is not best and certainly seek out a qualified operator.
Interesting outcome from French elections; two candidates now with opposed views on Europe, one wanting out soonest and the other very much opposite. Certainly dramatic times for elections and results. France has equally differing views on matters of weed control – interesting to watch what happens
