Bind weed - scourge of the garden

Convolvulus or Bindweed - the bane of my perennial garden. It wasn't here when I started and I'm not sure where it came from but it is here, and today I'm doing battle with it once again.

In looking on the internet for methods of eradication I sstubled upon this thread:

Note that this thread spans 10 years! Clearly an ongoing problem. What I get from it is DON'T till as you'll be turning up old dormant seed; pull as much as you can, and never let it go to seed!

This stuff is so nasty I don't even put it in the compost.
Keep Digging!
