Fighting neighbor's English Ivy
This is my plant nemesis. It comes under the hedge and into my azaleas. They are pretty big, so it climbs over, under and through them faster than I can stop them.
At Redentas someone suggested I could burn it with Vinegar and that wouldn't kill it back to the base for neighbor. That seems at least as much trouble as chopping it.
Since azaleas need pine, I cut the branches off my Christmas tree, and laid them on top of the EI hoping to block enough sun to stop it, but it just kept coming.
We have cyclone fence, so I tried retraining it back to her side, but it wants to be on my side....obviously.
Anyone else struggle with this? I like to plant things in that bed in front of the azaleas but the ivy chokes most things. Sooo, I cut and pull and bag.
