Getting rid of Bindweed
I managed to do some bramble-eradication at the weekend, I can now see the bottom of the garden, and can (almost) get into the first shed, where there's a step down into the bottom part of the garden.
I have, however, found that there is now LOTS of bindweed, that's rivalling the brambles for world domination (or back garden domination, anyway). Question is, how do I get rid of it. I'm going down the glyphosate, then cutting down & digging out roots for the brambles. I've been told that bramble roots only go down a spade and a half, that they mostly propogate by sending out huge runners and rooting wherever they hit the floor (which is why if they're not quite dead and the green bin is full, they go onto concrete). So I don't think I'll have THAT much digging to do for the brambles, question is, will it be the same for bindweed? I have a horrible feeling that sends it's roots out and then pops up all over the place to strangle anything useful attempting to grow.
So, peeps, who's had it, and what's the best way to get rid of it? All suggestions welcome.
