sorry, I meant to say
I HATE IT
I am that far (holding forefinger and thumb about 0.5 mm apart here) from weedkiller
one of you laid back guys is prepared to come round and manage it for me. You could be our Victorian hermit, live in a grass hut meditating and dash out each morning to pull it up.

Lately I have been getting pretty zen about it, trying to really understand what this plant is all about. My sense is that it regulates air in the soil. Too much air (like from double digging in clay), or too little air (compacted soil), and bindweed comes to the 'rescue'. Thick mulch on the surface, too much air, bindweed inflitrates thick. When I get the soil structure perfect, so that the air spaces are ideal, bindweed goes away. Earthworms are the army that can repel bindweed.
