Bindweed

Posted: 03/08/2013 at 08:16

For anyone who is digging up their bindweed (and providing it has not been chemically treated) there is a use for the plant instead of burning it or disposing of it in your rubbish bins.....

Drown the leaves and roots in a bucket of water (or larger depending on the extent of your problem) using a brick or stone to weigh everything down.  You then start to grown pondweed in the container which takes up the nutrients released from the bindweed as it decays.  Ater time the pondweed can be harvested and added to your compost heap for the future benefit of the plants you want to grow.
