Removing Ivy.

One of the jobs that I undertook last week was to remove some overhanging Ivy from the wall opposite the potting shed. The main reason for this being that it spends all summer shedding leaves below. Also it appears to be pushing the Fig tree away from the corner. Anyway I gave it a trim and later on when it greens up I think it will be an improvement to the area.

That is one plant that is nice in the right spot but usually ends up being a bother. I removed it from the gardens here but every now and again I find a bit more.

You are right there Doc. I often think that if this place stopped being maintained it would be consumed by Ivy within a few years as I am forever pulling it out or trimming it back.
