‘The weed on steroids’ is how one Canadian newspaper has been describing Giant Hogweed. It also goes on to describe it as ‘”looking like a Queen’s Anne lace on steroids but it is very dangerous to handle,”
The article reports on how one town is now waging a war on this dangerous plant and urging all residents, with extreme care to take action on dealing with this plant on their land and in the in the local town.
This town is all too aware of the dangers around Giant Hogweed and making a positive approach to tackling the weed. It’s a shame that towns in the UK are not as proactive in dealing with Giant Hogweed.
