To start pulling up the Himalayan Balsam before it flowers.
If you do not already know, grab the stem and give it a good pull and the whole root should pull out of the ground.
It's probably the quickest spreading invasive plant along side Japanese Knot Weed.

Himalayan Balsam in gin (check out the BBC) I should think so.
We have been pulling it up and spraying it.
