Hi!
I was playing around in my knotwood garden when i noticed tulips and lotsa other flowering bulbs putting up leaves. Then the knotwood grew over it and the leaves died back. So ya, turns out that before we moved here, there was no knotwood, and lotsa bulbs and stuff.

So how do i get rid of this knotwood ^.^ I tried cutting em down, but they shoot back up. I tried pulling them, but they got some THICK runners going around o.O Like the thickness of my arm! Annnnnnnnd my friends have this in their yard, and they've even tried going as far as pouring gasoline on them and setting them on fire even into the ground... So ya, how do i get rid of this annoying bamboo import?

I have no clue what knotwood even IS... Duh
...but when all else fails, use a backhoe.

JAPANESE KNOTWEED
Read the paragraph about how when you try to remove it, under "AND ANOTHER THING" that it just keeps multipling, the pieces' of it become new plants...

arrrrrrr! I just did a buncha work with it with Chris today. What we're gonna do is wait till this fall, go through there, find all the bulbs and just dig up anything that we haven't personally planted there. *thinks* i donno if it'll work though, cuz there's some down the road from us too which could potentially create more of it around here >.< So that'd suck... I donno, i just don't want it breaking the foundation of the house and growing inside here as well o.O Its already destroyed part of the pourch!

We were digging around it, and found it growing between the cracks in the pourch. It actually split the wood apart, and we have come to the conclusion that it isn't safe to walk on anymore >.< omg i hate this stuff! its gonna go down!!! *pulls out mechettie* MWAHAHAHAHA! *as lightning strikes it in a awesomely cool way so that it brings no harm to Phoebe or anything around her... except for that ******* knotweed!*
