Bindweed. Our allotment which we have just aquired has lots of bind weed roots, I was told by one gardener that some of the old boys used to stick in bamboo rods which the bindweed being a climber wound it's way up the rods then with this certain weed killer (which I have foregotten the name of) you pour some on gloved hands and starting from the bottom of the plant rub your hands up the underside of the leaves and down again, then the weed killer would find it's way down to the roots and killing them.
My question is has anybody else heard of this method and if so what is the name of the weed killer. Tugman
