Wow, Paula H, Verdun and Fleurisa - thank you for all the information. I have decided to 'train' the bindweed (there's plenty of it) and then blitz with gel/spray. My guess is that this will become a new hobby as I have discoverered more bindweed growing through other shrubs all in the same well established and fairly crowded area of the garden. Only a couple of weeks 'off' and bindweed rules - will it ever go away??
Fleurisa, thanks too for the RHS link - I am a relatively new gardener so help and advice from this forum is always welcome.
