My dad, a giant pumpkin grower, just sent me this cool article. knotweed vs pumpkin

since we have loads of knotweed, i've been dreaming up ideas to try to fight against it. i managed this year to keep a lot of it from making more seed at least.

Glad you found it useful! I planned on sowing winter rye in one of my knotweed patches this fall in hopes that it would get an early jump on the Jk. and also have alleopathy against it. But I didn't get to it and fall snuck up on me. Perhaps another time. I will definitely try pumpkins next year as well!
