I had a quick look through it. I was under the impression that the Japanese knotweed hybridised very easily with that climbing plant (the names gone for the moment) which caused further problems, but theirs no mention of the hybrid. Nor is there mention of the toxins it puts into the ground to prevent plant competion from other species. I would have thought these were more valuable pieces of information to make people aware of, especially as the toxins cause problems after the weed is cleared.
Apart from that, an interesting site I will spend more time investigating.
Bill.
