I have an allotment in England where I grow vegetables and fruit. One of the biggest problems I am having with it (other than the soil desperately needing fertilising) is the bindweed infestation.
I have tried all sorts to get rid of it. I have tried digging the roots out by hand, but I have 150 sqr meters of ground to dig through & I have read that the roots can penetrate to a depth of 5m.
I have tried training it up bamboo away from my crops and spraying it with Glyphosate based weed killers.
All to no avail, it seems to come back within only a matter of a week or two.
I've looked around the internet for more answers, but can't seem to come up with anything.
