Has anyone successfully gotten rid of Binder Weed in your garden? It is worse than the blackberries when we were living in the NW! We have tried 2-4-D and just digging up all the roots but if you leave even a little bit, it comes back thicker than ever!

Hi libraryannie,
If you are talking Field Bindweed, it can take 3 years and seldom if ever brought under control in one season or year. Here is a link.

It is virtually impossible to get rid of Bindweed!  It has roots several feet deep in the soil, and it grows laterally as well - It will send a root underneath a concrete driveway, and pop up on the other side to start new plants.  In our area all of the farm fields are full of Bindweed, and birds spread the seeds everywhere. The only way I have found to control it -- not eliminate it, but control it -- is to brush the leaf with something such a 2,4-D/LV6 (note: Brush it on, don't spray it!) on leaves as soon as it emerges from the soil. The 2,4-D/LV6 will kill that segment of the plant and root, but it will not kill the original plant or roots as the segments of the root will stop the absorbing of herbicide.


Never plant without a bucket of compost at your side.

Binder Weed Empty Thank you

Post  libraryannie on 12/27/2019, 4:39 pm

Thank you for your thoughtful replies. We had it coralled a couple of years ago with some kind of 2,4-D hybrid but last year the same bottle did not touch the weed. Maybe it got too cold in our garage or we neglected to shake it or the bindweed mutated into a resistant son of a gun. Now that I know it is a long term commitment, I will be more vigilant and not quit so soon. Otherwise it is going to take over this entire garden/orchard and make our property worthless!

Nasty weed! Dan, thanks for the UC Davis link. Annie, best of luck in getting it under "control."

sanderson, no need to thank me, I learn so much when I further research some of the questions or comments here at the forum. Mostly to make sure what I think I know is mostly true because the best gardening answer I ever got started off with, " Well that all depends.....". Now I am researching Field Bindweed vs Morning Glories. Field Bindweed is a perennial and Morning Glories are a self seeding annual which can also become a problem in the garden. Did you see where Field Bindweed seeds can remain viable for 50 years, very good reason to pray and practice no-till. Let sleeping seeds lie.
