Invasive Ivy Roots

Posted: 17/03/2017 at 06:04

My guess is that you water the plants in the raised bed and that the ivy roots are inexorably drawn to the moisture. I've found tree roots growing upwards into raised veggie beds for the same reason. 

You can buy a membrane to control tree roots. Don't know the name but I've seen it online. 

Good luck

My guess is that the dairy delivery drivers' union had a lawyer who was very hot on drafting documents and had a keen eye for punctuation.

It's turned quite grey and dreary outside here in Norfolk - the wind has got up and the heating has come on. 

Wrap up warm Fairy, Joyce, LirI, Lily P and anyone else in northern parts. .... Speaking of which, I hope Bushman is ok ((hugs))
