ENGLISH IVY--BRICKEnglish Ivy should NOT be allowed to grow on brick buildings as the roots will eat away at the mortar, causing bricks to crumble and fall, especially if the mortar has started to crumble.
As an alternative, Boston Ivy can be used IF vines are removed from
the buildings each spring.
ENGLISH IVY--OUTDOOR CAREEnglish Ivy groundcovers should be mowed with a mower set at its highest setting in the early spring. Fertilize and water immediately after.
English Ivy should be planted in shaded locations that are protected
from winter winds and sun. Plants are slow to establish and fill in.
