Eradicating Bindweed (S291a: 1878)

Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: A brief question posed to the Editor of The Garden, printed on page 143 of the magazine's 10 August 1878 issue. Although only his initials appear, Wallace was a frequent contributor and the query probably is from him.

    Eradicating Bindweed.--How can I get rid of Bindweed? Every thing in my garden is more or less spoiled by it. The roots penetrate the shale below the soil. --A. R. W. [There is no way but to trench deeply and pick out every scrap that can be found. Constant pulling it up and leaving part of the roots in the ground only increases the stock, as the smallest particle soon makes a vigorous plant. --W. W.]
