fighting bindweed with a wheel hoe ??
I have read extensive postings on using roundup , I would like to avoid it
a few years in a row my husband roto tilled with the 4 foot tiller on the tractor and it made the bindweed spread every where .
I have my husbands families ancient planet jr double wheel cultivator ,after 2 years of hand pulling which is helping a bit, I am ready to abandon my wide beds they are a pain with bind weed ( strawberry plants get strangled by this weed ) and it seems to just go under surface mulches and come up on the other side .
. I want to try doing narrow single rows , so I can run up and down with the cultivator tines and pull the runners up
I found a place to get all the extra parts so I am hoping to start as soon as the garden thaws ( spring is running very late here in southern MA )
has any one had luck with this ? I can not seem to find much on using a wheel hoe to deal with really invasive weeds .
