Most popularly grown up walls and along fences, Irish Ivy is perfect for covering unsightly surfaces. Hedera hibernica can also be used as ground cover. Simply pin down the new shoots and they will quickly take root. Hedera hibernica is great for using as ground cover as it discourages soil erosion. The roots help to bind the soil, preventing erosion. Irish Ivy has 'aerial roots', meaning they grow above ground. This makes it the ideal climbing ivy for walls and fences and once established Irish Ivy will quickly cover any surface.

A point to remember when planting and pruning your Irish Ivy is that the sap can irritate the skin. It is best to wear long sleeves and gloves when handling this plant if you have sensitive skin.


Use Hedera hibernica as ground cover or for training along walls and fences.

Bought 3 x 60 cm plants, with pot.1 x Hedera was as expected (=advertised) whereas the other 2 had at most 15 leaves each on one single branch, which indeed was 60 cm high.

The plants arrived in excellent health albeit a little jumbled in the box.Might I suggest that if shipping via Parcel Force you pack the plant-pots into something to stop them tipping over.

Ordered Ivy plants to make a hedge. We wanted them to be well established so that they would cover a mesh fence quickly. These plants have a very good root system and are a decent height, so very satisfied with them. Expect they will take off in the spring no problem. Very satisfied with the service and would recommend this company.
