News on the war on Giant Hogweed

A co-conspirator believes that he has seen a spraying team of three moving towards Auldearn along the burn, and furthermore there are rumours of spraying at Cawdor. Have you seen or heard of other efforts to eradicate the alien menace? Please forward pictures to the Gurn. Native lands for native species! (apart from the  odd mature Wellingtonia, and even sycamores are nice after two or three hundred years, daffodils too and even potatoes are useful and...). The Gurn has nothing against alien flora, well what would our gardens be without them but we just can't stand Giant Hogweed and Japanese Knotweed and Himalyan Balsam (even if it is a relative of the bizzie lizzie), why can't they all just go home and leave all the good jobs along the riverside to the native species?

What next? Giant Hogweed gets bail?
