How to take care of Hedera Hibernica
For best results soak the roots for approx 2 hrs before planting and water well after planting and for the next few weeks. Plant preferably in a heavy rich moist soil. Make sure its approx 30cm (12") away from the fence or trellis. It is tolerant to acidic, alkaline or even slightly salty earth. Requires good drainage and air circulation. Once the plant starts to grow, it will train itself to grow up walls or trellis forming a dense green shape in time. Ivy produces small black berries that the birds love, but beware; they are poisonous to humans! If planted indoors, keep away from direct sunlight.
