Treat it like bermuda grass, pull it cut it dig it and or cover it up for a year. It spreads by seed and root so keep it cut and do not let it go to seed, and just keep after it. I don''t think roundup even kills the roots.

I have been fighting bindweed in my gardens for around 40 years.
Unless you want to use roundup every spring (which only gets rid of it for part of the growing season, as it will travel back in on the wind) your only other option is to continually pull it.
If you keep up with it and don''t let it take over, it really isn''t that big a problem.

P.S. I no longer spend a lot of time pulling it in some parts of my garden... by fall my potatoes will be completely covered. I haven''t noticed any real decline in my potato production due to this, I still grow enough to last through the winter.

Anyone have an idea on how I can get morning golry out of my garden? I purchased some organic fertilizer last year and it seems to have had the seeds in it. They sprouted last year, and now no matter what I seem to do I cannot stop them!
