    I’m so delighted at the ease with which I can get out a big section of bindweed due to the manure mulch! I’m lucky also to have more time at the moment, so as soon as bindweed shows itself it gets removed. It amazes me that i now really look forward to going to my allotment to pull the bindweed!

    Great isn’t it. Leaves you feeling a huge sense of achievement.

    This must be the first ever post with such a title, well done Gwynleg!

    I too am levering out bindweed from the kitchen garden on a daily basis; though I will confess that I’m standing solidly on the hate side of any love-hate relationship with it. I have a border which was plagued with bindweed so I removed all the plants and covered the ground with black polythene for 2 years. That does seem to have helped a lot, but not completely, but looking at black polythene for 2 years wasn’t pretty!

    We had new neighbours move in to the north of our veg plot and they replaced an old hedge with new trees and suddenly bindweed has sprung up. Obviously they did nothing evil, but an opportunity may have emerged for bindweed to spread.

    Just shows that anything and everything can potentially be a rogue event…..
