Sorry maud, I think glyphosate is the answer....correction, i know it to be the answer. From an infested garden I now have no bindweed whatsoever
Queen quack, bindweed is easily killed by glyphosate but there are some factors. One is 5 hours of dry weather after application. Two you need to apply it 2 or 3 times this summer. Apply at the rosette stage...weedkiller is more effective on new growth. The shoots will be killed. Further shoots will appear in few weeks so spray these. Repeat few weeks later.
To get the rosette stage cut back and allow fresh growth ...this is ideal to spray
Digging will spread your bindweed every piece of root, no matter how small, will grow
