What is bindweed?

Bindweed (Calystegia sepium) is a familiar plant in the UK with its white trumpet like flowers. However, left unmanaged, it can twine around plant stems and choke plants in borders and flower beds and even lawns. The bindweed roots spread from sections of stem (rhizome) and may penetrate up to 5m deep and grow rapidly. Established plants can spread outwards by 2m or more in one season.

How do we remove bindweed?

We use a system of integrated weed control meaning that we combine physical control with herbicide (glyphosate) control where possible. For various reasons physical control may not be possible or viable and that's when we'd look at herbicide alternatives. We always opt for the one which is safest and has the least environmental impact. It is a trade-off as the plant being treated has an impact of its own hence the treatment.
