  1. I dig the bad areas and dont grow anything near it for a year so I can keep
    digging it out. You can train some up a cane or train it into a bottle of
    vinegar mixed with water to kill off the roots. :-)

  2. I spent the best part of a year clearing my allotment of that little
    white-rooted bastard. I feel quite justified in hating bindweed too.

  3. Yes, it does grow back from little pieces that break off, but if you attack
    those with the same technique as soon as they sprout through the surface,
    you’ll eventually get rid of it.

  4. you have to get every bit of the white root out or it comes back,i spent
    years digging at least a foot deep and sieving the soil in a victorian
    cottage garden I owned,its a blasted nuisance!.the roots spread and break
    off when you pull them,each bit even the leaves can make a new plant….it
    takes hours!

  5. I have seen it kill 20 foot trees,hedges ect… don’t let it flower, keep
    atacking it,before it claws into you’er bed room and stranges you! evil ,
    evil weed!!!!!!!!!!!!
