What is Himalayan Balsam

Himalayan Balsam, Impatiens glandulifera, was introduced into Britain in 1839 as an ornamental garden plant. It escaped from cultivation and has spread rapidly throughout the UK and Ireland, favouring moist and semi-shaded damp places, predominantly by slow-moving watercourses and waste land.

I was unable to re-mortgage the property & used this company who provided a comprehensive survey & put a strategy in place to remove the knotweed, the service was excellent & the staff that carried out the spraying were polite, courteous & very professional.

Tony Nguyen

Very happy with the service provided by Japanese Knotweed Specialists. They are a professional company with knowledgeable workers who know what they are doing.

Elaine Chadwick


I called this company in a panic when a neighbour spotted giant knotweed in my garden. This company immediately put me at ease and had an inspector at my property within a couple of hours. Luckily, it turned out not to be knotweed – I received a written notification of this the very next day- but I was hugely impressed by everyone I dealt with. Calls were returned immediately and nothing seemed too much trouble. AMAZING customer service. Elaine. Glasgow

What does Himalayan Balsam look like?

Himalayan balsam is a tall growing annual, 2-3m (6-10ft) in height. Between June and October it produces clusters of purplish pink (or rarely white) helmet-shaped flowers. The flowers are followed by seed pods that open explosively when ripe.
