I've just resorted to using round up to try and stop the bind week and tayberries taking over my garden. I've tried digging them up but I can't get all the roots up. I've obviously worried I will have killed other plants in my garden by doing so but there was nothing else I could do it is literally everywhere, growing up roses growing up every plant in the garden. I'm so worried I'm going to have killed off other things to but I've waited till it's a still day and tried to prevent run off as much as possible. Ho hum we will see. It will probably kill all the plants I want to keep and the bind weed will remain triumphant!

I don't like using chemicals of any sort, but weedkillers to me are the only way to go when you have couch grass and other weeds coming up everywhere. There is only me who gardens and, as it is a large one to cope with, it's like the Forth Bridge. My only concern is having four cats but if I spray and cover it with something, I think that's the only way to go, unless you have the capability to dig every root out which I don't.
Spring always comes when we sow the seeds of life.

What weeds or weed roots dont you compost ?
