Before I went away we had a bonfire at the allotment to try and get rid of the bindweed we'd pulled out of the ground. It took a while to get the fire going - I'm not so good at building them though I love feeding them. We burnt a fair bit but it was all a bit slow for my son. We got rid of quite a lot of the bindweed but still have some left. Can't compost it as it has amazing ability to shoot back into life from any tiny knobbly bit of root. Could try drowning it or another fire .....


  1. You'll probably have to burn it. Drowning doesn't work.

  2. ah hah - that shouldn't surprise me.
