This morning (11/03/14) GFT were accompanied by the Forestry Commission on the Knocknairling Burn (tributary to Loch Ken on the Kirkcudbrightshire Dee) to investigate the report of Japanese knotweed growing on the banks of the burn. We did not only find the root clumps sticking out of the ground, but we also found numerous small red saplings. This suggests that the wet mild winter, with a lack of ice/snow, has only supported the growth of Japanese Knotweed.
