How to Deal with Bindweed

How to Deal with Bindweed

Reduce the vigour of bindweed, both Convolvulus arevensis, field bindweed with pink flowers, and Calystegia sepium, hedge bindweed with white flowers and longer stems.

I have cleared or almost cleared both on large areas, but needed 2-3 years for that. No dig helps enormously.

You can compost all of it too, I have done this for years with no regrowth.

Filmed by Edward Dowding at Homeacres 15th June 2018, it’s also him in the thumbnail, 9 years ago, holding a long root of convolvulus. http://edowdingfilms.onfabrik.com/
