Welcome from Missouri. I don't have bindweed, but I have just discovered that the stinging nettle that I thought was confined to under the steps, has flung itself to the far side of the garden. I should have known better.

Welcome. Agree we love pix. Bindweed is a problem child. Just be glad you don’t have bur cucumber (a cross between bindweed and stinging nettles on steroids). In garden, hoe should be an excellent tool to kill it-as long as you miss desired plants. Can always paint it with glysophate.

Hello from central illinois! I am still new to gardening, although I did help out in my family's garden as a kid. I currently have a very old, very rough farmyard I am trying to make productive again. Right now my biggest nemesis is the bindweed...

Hoping to find lots of inspiration and more experienced gardeners for advise!
