Commentary

Thanks for your concern about English Ivy.

Yes, this is a nasty plant that you definitely dont want on your property. I'm glad you plan to control it.

For some handy control information, see the Western Invasives Networks forum on plant control:

Scroll to the bottom and you will see two good articles on how to control ivy with our without herbicides.

Good luck, and thanks again for reporting.
