This couple are being told to demolish their house to eradicate knotweed

We didnt buy a house once because it had knotweed in the garden. Ive seen it growing through concrete and tarmac. Apparantly you can eat it - its supposed to taste a bit like rhubarb. Love Lizzie

I know a guy who has just had the ok for planning permission for a number of houses but there is Knotweed on the land and he has to follow a 5 year plan to completely eradicate it before he can touch the land.

What a terrable thing to have happen to your house hope none is ever found here. Wonder if digging soil and burning it like is done here to clean it would work as it kills all the seeds, would cost but must be better than this
