Bindweed is a trumpet flowered, twining, choking weed, that smothers the plants it climbs. It has become a problem in a few areas of the college, notably in two of our borders, in one of the Cassan Building borders and the other, in the Provost's Lodging border. Very difficult to eradicate, Ali spent three hours painting the numerous leaves with a mixture of Glyphosate, a weedkiller and washing up liquid. Why washing up liquid? Adding it to the weedkiller helps it to stick to the leaves and prevent run off on to other plants.
