Q. I bury kitchen vegetable waste and garden waste to enhance the soil. I have wild morning glory all over my property. What portion of the morning glory vines can be burried without encouraging new morning glory growth? Thanks
A. The wild morning glory (Field bindweed) will likely regenerate from all parts of the plant. I would not take the chance and would exclude them from your “strip composting” (this is a term used for what you are doing). If the plant did not flower yet and is not carrying seeds you may be able to cut back the stems and allow them to completely dry out before incorporating them. I would test the drying process in a small area before doing it on a large scale though. Sometimes you are better off safe than sorry.
