  • Although this is not poisonous hemlock it is from the railway line above our garden and has crept down the embankment onto the garden shed and surrounds. In past years TFL would come and cut down all the grass and trailing growth from the embankment but this has not been done for quite a while. It is so bad that it is entangled in the trees and spread like wildfire and has somehow managed to grow through the garden shed and on top of it. There used to be a path at the back of the houses but now it is non existent due to overgrowth from embankment. Please can you get someone out to clear this problem. Many thanks
