questions on English ivy
I'm in zone 6, suburban New Jersey, and have a yard that has some English ivy that was here before we moved in. My preference is to get rid of it, but my husband says he loves the look of the ivy climbing some of our trees. Here are my questions:
Will I have enough of a warning to save the trees if the ivy is weakening them, or will it be too late by the time there are any signs?
Does anyone know if the winter coldness here is enough to keep its invasiveness in check? Is the invasiveness a problem in this area already?
Thanks. -- Lori
