B IS FOR BINDWEED

And Bane of my Allotment and Bloody Nuisance in my Garden, as it spirals up the stems of everything taller, twirling and strangling  as it goes.

Bindweed: what is it good for?  Absolutely nothing!

But no, hang on a minute.  The very essence of bindweed – its basic bindiness – can be turned to an advantage.  Ever been stuck down the allotment without your string?  The stem of bindweed can be used to bind stuff, in this case to tie up a bunch of lavender – and you can even knot it.
