5023re: field bindweed
- Aug 1, 2005Creeping jenny (convolvulus arvenios L.) is the specific bindweed I am
dealing with. We do have another "wild morning glory" or hedge
bindweed which oinly stays around hedges, fence rows, and I never
encounter it in the garden. I dont think the latter likes
cultivation, where as creeping jenny seems to multiply by careless
control. When I pick it I take all parts away from the garden.
These wild "morning glories" are different than real morning glory
family (ipomoea). As pointed out by another poster, Ipomoea can be
dealt with by controlling the seeds and does not tolerate root
Re; carpet mulch - I have used old carpet for canada thistle. It did
good weed control but the carpet did start to break down leaving
material on the ground after it was picked up. I wonder what kind of
compounds are left behind. I no longer want the stuff in my house,
let alone my garden.
