  2. Japanese Knotweed has arrived here in Canada. It is unwanted and is considered a invasive species. Good luck with the recovery program.

  10. That is something I had never heard of before so I looked it up. Sounds like it's a good thing to get rid of.

  15. We have a big problem with it here in parts of Toronto and volunteers go out into the ravines to try to gather and destroy it!

  18. I must be lucky. I've never heard of the stuff unless we call it something else around here.

  19. Never heard of that particular invasive species and I’m surprised I haven’t, both Oregon and Florida seem to be havens for lots of plants that shouldn’t be here.

  20. I believe this is very difficult to get rid of, but I'm pleased they are trying.

    All the best Jan
