Talkback: Dealing with bindweed

I know the feeling , have tried it all .... as will all gardeners , I unwind the weed from its support plant and wind it round my hand , push into a small plastic bag and spray the glysophate into the bag , which can easily be hidden in the border / buried under mulch.
