If you can give the leaves a squirt of weedkiller (one of those small 500ml bottles) without any spray getting on the spuds' leaves then that would be worth a try.

But if you don't want to risk that, then I would cut the stem of the weed as near to the soil as possible - this will stop it growing further and strangling the spuds.  If you can pull the root out, then also do that.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

glyphosate applied carefully to the tips  ;) you wouldn't want to get it on the spuds!

Can you put a cane in so that it can grow up it,then let it get more leaves & then paint it with some of that paint on weedkiller rather than a spray. Those types of weed killer work best on larger surface areas of greenery.

Tbh it won't really hurt the spuds much, but by not dealing with it, the bindweed gets stronger and is then harder to get rid of later down the road

Anyone got any idea what this is?  My plot is absolutely covered in it.

They start off with two tiny leaves, and then the leave begin to look carrot like.

And this is a mature weed

Amurdin, you have my sympathy - I've got loads of bindweed too, mostly in my strawberries now i've got rid of the couch grass. It grows from the tiniest bit of root. I've got it coming up in beds I've dug over and I can't believe the scraps it's generated from!  :mad:
