Description

English Ivy, also known as Hedera helix, is a classic plant for adding a touch of elegance to any garden or landscape. It is a hardy, evergreen climbing plant that can grow in a variety of conditions, making it a versatile addition to any outdoor space.

One of the primary reasons to have English Ivy in your garden is its aesthetic appeal. The glossy, deep green leaves of this plant can create a stunning backdrop for other plants and flowers, or they can be used to cover unsightly walls or fences. English Ivy also works well in container gardens, providing a lush and dramatic look to any patio or balcony.

Another benefit of English Ivy is its ability to improve air quality. The plant is known for its ability to remove toxins from the air, making it a great choice for anyone looking to improve their overall health and wellbeing.

When it comes to growing English Ivy, it is a relatively low-maintenance plant that can thrive in a range of conditions. It prefers partial to full shade and moist, well-drained soil. However, it can also tolerate some sun and drought once established. English Ivy is also a climbing plant and will need support to grow vertically. It can be trained to climb up walls, trellises, and other structures.

In terms of planting, it is best to space English Ivy plants about 18-24 inches apart to allow for proper growth and air circulation. Once planted, it is important to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged, as this can lead to root rot. Pruning is also important to keep the plant from becoming too overgrown and to encourage new growth.

English Ivy has a rich history in both folklore and medicinal use. In ancient times, it was believed to have protective powers and was often used to ward off evil spirits. Medicinally, the plant has been used to treat a range of ailments, including coughs, bronchitis, and even arthritis. Today, English Ivy is primarily used for ornamental purposes, but its unique history adds to its charm and allure.

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.

Spacing Recommendations

Space English ivy 2 feet away from foundations or retaining walls and keep 1 to 2 feet between individual plants. Eventually they will fill in the space between plants for a lush groundcover.
