Giant Hogweed


June 2022

Please be aware of the dangers from Giant Hogweed which if come into contact with the sap can cause a sensitivity to the sun and result in burns and blistering.

Giant Hogweed is not a native UK plant, but grows in abundance to heights of between 1.5m to 5m tall with a spread of between 1m to 2m. Flowers appear in June and July and are small white or pinkish clusters on umbrella like heads which can reach a diameter of up to 60cm.

The best way to avoid injury is to familiarise yourself with the plants appearance and avoid brushing through patches of giant hogweed especially if the stems have been cut which may cause you to get sap on your skin.

If you do come into contact with the sap from giant hogweed wash the area immediately, seek medical advice and do not expose the area to sunlight for a few days.
