Regarding my bindweed invasion...thank you all for your helpful replies.
Weedol, seems to be the most favoured product but the only proprietary brand of weedkiller which I recognise and I can buy here is Roundup (several varieties). Which company makes it? A range of Bayer products is available and a range called Fertiligene. I can also buy generic glyphosate, generally used as an annual treatment.
I could also opt for a systemic treatment called dimethylamine salt or MCPA.
I must confess that I have never used weedkiller before and am slightly afraid of it. I have also heard that even with a systemic treatment, other plants can suffer if the roots are entwined.
However, I know that I am losing the battle of the bindweed and have to do something quick. I am now prepared to temporarily move plants out of the way, if necessary.
Can anyone help shed light on any of these products/chemicals?
