Hedera helix - English Ivy
Product ref: C15943
The small leaved English ivy plant can find many uses all round the garden. It can be used to cover a wall in shade where few other plants thrive, it can be trained to climb up or spread out along a low wall. Being evergreen, it is perfect for covering pergola poles, or creating a leafy backdrop under clematis and climbing roses that provides winter interest. Or use young plants to train around the outsides of winter hanging baskets. English ivy can be trimmed into shape at any time of year. It is a valuable plant for wildlife and is recommended by the RSPB, particularly for providing berries for birds in winter when most others have been eaten. Many insects also feed on the nectar of its white flowers. Supplied in approx 2-3 litre containers.
