Buy Hedera helix English ivy / common ivy: Great for seasonal pots and baskets


  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, preferably alkaline, moist, well-drained soil (or John Innes No3 potting compost for container-grown plants)
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A tough and adaptable plant, which when young, will look great spilling over the edges of seasonal pots and baskets. It does get big however and if planted in the border, this self-clinging evergreen climber can also be used to cover ugly walls and fences in good time - or provide a lush green carpet in the dry shady areas beneath shrubs and trees where little else will grow. Its an excellent choice for the wildlife garden since it supports a wide range of native species, but it can also be grown as a houseplant (we did say it was adaptable!) where it will help reduce indoor air pollution.

  • Garden care: Water specimens grown as houseplants regularly during the growing season, providing a balanced liquid fertiliser each month. Keep moist during the winter months. Plants may be pruned at any time of the year to keep within bounds

  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy
