Moved to this house Autumn 2012 (fell in love with the garden and primarily the huge willow tree)
Last year I spotted some bindweed so dug up what I could and read up on it.
We have a large lawn with borders and then an allotment at the bottom of the garden with 12 beds and fruit trees.
The BW is in pretty much every part of the garden.
I have made it my mission to try and remove it from the allotment first as we have raised beds so when they were empty I dug them over and pulled out every tiny speck of root that I could see and burned it. I have also treated any that I couldn't get to with the touch gel which seems to have killed off the plants but unfortunately not the root as its just springing up another.
At the moment I am spending 30-40 minutes a day removing BW and then hours at the weekend. Please tell me that it will take the hint and that I will get through to it?
I am contemplating completely weedkilling the allotment beds once all the veggies are done at the end of the year.... will this work? :-/
