    I agree … I can see nothing that looks anything like Japanese Knotweed in any of those pics. 😊

  • Thanks! Not even the single hollow broken stalk?

    One hollow broken stalk looks much like another. Lots of plants have hollow stems. We would need to see leaves to tell you what it might be.

  • But what else could a broken hollow stalk be? Many harmless things? Thanks

    Sambucus
    leycestaria formosa
    bamboo

    to name just three that are commonly found in gardens. 
    There are plenty of others.

    If there’s new growth that you’re worried about in the spring take some photos and show us. We’ll let you know. 😊

  • If you can see what's on the other side of the fence that might help identify it.
  • The leaves are on one side, the single stalk in the other side
