Ivy out of control!

 hello Dena, welcome

I've removed it from lots of places in this garden. Still got plenty, useful cover for bird/mammal/insect The flowers and berries are good as well.

Be careful pulling it off the fence unless it's good and solid. I haven't found the need to glyphosate later but it may depend on what sort of soil you're pulling it off. If you're got it on any otherwise empty ground a mower is an excellent tool

The gist of Marineliliums post is that if you stop poisoning things the natural predators take over. It works OK for me

Read the instructions before you open them?

They self seed easily in the pond edge so I'd set them in very wet compost,

Mine were originally in a bag from Sainsbury's not from seed
