Bindweed has begun growing in earnest! The best way to keep this tenacious weed out of your plot is to monitor the borders. That means pulling it up from along the path and edges. It readily re-sprouts so be prepared to pull again. And maybe once again.

Before flowering, bindweed is easily identified by its arrowhead-shaped leaves and vining habit. When in flower, you’ll recognize it by its pale pink morning glory-like flowers.
