What is Bindweed ?
It is the very annoying weed with attractive pinkish white bell shaped flowers and green arrow shaped leaves that winds its way across your garden, under and over fences, up the stems of garden plants and boundary hedges making a suffocating tangled mess of foliage. It is a gardeners nightmare, a single bindweed weed grows up to five feet in length from a deep strong root.
If left untreated it spreads and covers plants and shrubs in your garden suffocating them.
Bindweed comes from
Keeping a garden free of bindweed.
What's good about Bindweed?
Nothing, but grudgingly I suppose I quite like the delicate flowers which give of a soft fragrance and are Bee and other insects friendly, On the other hand, so are the plants and flowers it will eventually kill off and replace with a suffocating tangled mess of vine! Kill it and control new growth.
The only sure way to control it is to kill the whole plant including the green and the roots, contact type weedkillers kill the leaves and stem, but leave the roots alive, to grow again.
