Ivy out of control

Posted: 18/10/2013 at 14:38

my neighbours had this on their walls.. and they dont really do gardening (wondered why bought such a big plot if not into it) anyway.. they had the ivy coming in inbetween the windows and the wall indoors.. i couldnt believe how it creeps in...

but yes the house along road did as suggested.. they were covered up all over the roof also.. when they brough the house.. and they cut the basal stems and let it die down natural first.

yes fairy girl it is wrong for people to do that.. but still i think lack of dicipline is the problem these days..

yes the blue you can see is the English Channel and bit of the sky.. hence why so windy here. whips up side of the cliff and straight over my garden.. thas why we hve had to enstall trellis as fencing or they blow down over winter.. as my new neighbours found out after htey put up 6ft panels.. did tell them..

it was satisfying.. and the path is still comin on. will put up more piccie when i can.. our harddrive went bang at weekend.. so have been busy trying to reinstall everything onto the new one.. and reclaim the lost data on the other one!!!!!

@gardengirl... many thanks. mine are already large and the roots..well they are very thick and fast growing.. so the space i gave them is about right then for the size they can become.
