I want to get some English Ivy started on a shady side of my house, what should I purchase without spending a bundle. I would like to plant some (spaced 12" apart) and would like at least 10 plants. Thanks for any advice- Paul
No advice, but just a warning that ivy can do a lot of damage to bricks or siding and can provide entry for pests. You may want to think about this a little more.
thanks Susan- do you have any alternative ground cover you would suggest? Paul
I agree & think ajuga in it's many colors would work well. You could use creeping wintergreen &/or creeping Phlox, vinca with or instead of ajuga. Spot Hosta, contoneaster,heuchera in for color & to break up the carpet cover with a little style.
