The Dreaded Bindweed

Oh how I loathe the monstrous stuff so imagine my horror when I was busy clearing the spot where I want to grow my veggies only to find I was digging up the roots of bindweed.    You might miss the root if you don’t have the plant to go by but it’s white and fleshy and it snaps easily.  It’s so important to dig every scrap of it out and to burn it or put it in the bin.  Don’t whatever you do put it on the compost heap.

Whenit’s in flower some people think it looks quite pretty – little do they know!   It’s such a thug,  it’ll overtake and strangle everything in its way so it has to go.

My greenhouse goes up this week I hope – fingers crossed for a few good days!
