I have an area about 200 sq feet that has been invaded by bindweed. If I put down a black plastic mulch, will that kill it? I normally don't like to use plastic mulch, but if it gets rid of the bindweed, I will use it for a few seasons.
Yes, black plastic mulch can be used to eradicate bindweed. However, you have other options if you are not totally comfortable with that, which are discussed in the following article:

How? I have identified the roots and pull them out as much as I can, but I'm afraid when I pull them, I just break them into small pieces when make them spread more. I'm also adding a lot of topsoil to my garden with hopes of burying them further. Can I do anything else other then adding chemicals?
Here is an article that will help you.

We are in the North Okanagan in British Columbia, zone 6b. We have a bindweed infestation in the front lawn. We built a 12 x 30 flower garden in the center of the yard, that has not been filled yet. We are looking for any information on destroying this invasive weed without using toxic chemicals. Any suggestions?

I have a barrel in my garden that I am growing vegetables in - I ran out of seeds though and I ended up only planting cabbage and sunflowers in the barrel. Somehow another seedling is growing - is it a weed or a vegetable i have forgotten about?! It doesn’t look at all like a cabbage seedling and it does look similar to the sunflower but doesn’t quite look the same/ have the same texture. Any ideas? Thanks in advance
Oh no! Thanks for the heads up! There was me thinking it was a vegetable ? better get that sorted pronto!
