This beautiful bed of japanese knotweed is situated alongside the Palace Cafe 157 Tottenham Lane
London N8 9BT, next to the hand car wash, with the music palace nearby.

Looks like its a problem for the landowners, the environment agency nad Haringey don't want to know. But maybe the neighbours in the high even numbers on Fairfield Road, will.
The crop looks well tended and all of an even height, like a much loved hedge that is being lovingly cared for.

Bizarrely Haringey is immensely proud of its Haringey Knotweed - also know as the Railway Knotweed – the only known wild British population of this remarkable plant was discovered (“new to science”) by David Bevan at Railway Fields in 1987. It is a hybrid between the Russian Vine and the Japanese Knotweed.
A cross between two of the peskiest pests known to gardeners!!
