Just sorting out the garden finding it very theraputic but i have a problem i got a Giant Hogweed at the bottom bit of the garden where i throw all the cuttings grass plants trees bushes. It's about 12 feet tall and very wide and ugly i slashed at it with a machete and the juice squirted out and it burns. It is the heat i reckon and an old boy neighbour says we should report it to the local council as they are dangerous and will spread quite fast, anyone had one in their garden?

If it's Japanese hogweed then you do need to report it to the council as its very invasive . If its ordinary hogweed, then just slash it and put some Round Up on it. How do you tell the difference? I haven't a clue- ask Monty Don

Giant Hogweed (Heracleum Mantegazzianum) imported in the 1800's by the gentry for their gardens grows upwards of twenty feet highly toxic causes severe burns grows by river banks which is where this one is. I booked a firm to come and clear the area but there may be some more further up the banks. The most dangerous plant in britain so it says, Bugger.

Let's hope it is Giant Hogweed then, although I am sure AD can tell the difference.
