Hi Welshkatt,

I'm no expert but I used to have a hard and fast rule in my garden if it couldn't survive only being watered once a week in summer it tended not to get planeted again ( I do take a bit more interest in my garden these days and spend a bit more time in there!)

I found Lavenders, sage, rosemary, thyme and Fushias (?spelling?) seemed to do really well, the herbs also smell really nice on a summers evening which might be nice if you have any residents who have problems with their sight.

hope it helps, not very original I know!

Problem Ivy

Wow! 

Thanks both for such a quick response. We'll start with taking a chunk out of the stems for now at least we can feel like we've made a start without causing any problems for the birds, and crack on in the late summer early autumn with the rest.

It's much apperciated, we weren't quite sure where to start there's so much of it in such a small space!

Problem Ivy

Posted: 18/04/2012 at 16:10

We've just in herited a garden with a house that we bought at the end of last month. There is a monster amount of Ivy all over the place, to the point of it's choaking all other plants in the garden.#

 We certainly need to thin out the ivy if not get rid of it totally from certain places, and we are also very aware we have sparrows and blackbirds and possibly even a couple of dove nesting in it at various points around the garden.

Could anyone please suggest a way of hacking back this bully to give the trees and other plants a chance without disturbing the birds too much or are we just going to have to wait until the chicks have fledged?!
