Bindweed is trying to take over my garden. So far, I have sprayed it with Round up and Trimec with 2-4D. It causes it to deform but it doesn't die and just sends up more shoots. Any ideas?

It's related to morning glories.

That's what we call choke weed. All comes down to what part of the country you're in.

I bet that's the plant or some variety that choked my raspberries , I ended up just pulling everything out and tilled it again and again ,,,,,,, planted strawberries they a few years ago and now I see some coming up again :mad2:   Right now it's in with the asparagus , I try pulling and digging the roots , sprayed Borax water mix . I'll will try the boiling water and if anyone has other ideas will be willing to try them too . It's really still with the perennials . Sure don't want to loose the asparagus after all these years . We are getting good crops from that bed

Cultivating, pulling and cussing. Once it gets a foothold it's hard to eradicate. Burning at the end of harvest seemed to work the best.

I had a big problem with morning glory. I would go out after a rain and very carefully wiggle the vines and pull them out. I used roundup mixed very strong and did a lot of tilling. After a few years I got rid of it.

One thing you might try, is to get some old plastic butter tubs and cut a slit in the top, add some roundup and stick the end of the vine into the tub. Let get a good drink and it should knock it back.

It seems like sprays don't do anything to weeds anymore, everything is getting immune to Round Up and 2-4D. We don't use any sprays on our farm, but our neighbor does and neither Round Up or 2-4D will kill any weeds in her drive way and waking paths.
