Alien weed by roadside

KNOTWEED is growing out on to the road from two houses in Sonning Common, according to a parish councillor.

Dirk Jones, who first reported the outbreak in 2014, says it is now encroaching on Peppard Road. He told a parish council meeting that something should be done. “It has come back like last year,” he said. “Nothing is being done about it and it’s blowing all over the place. It’s back on the highway.”

The invasive alien weed, which requires specialist removal, can grow as much as 20cm a day.
