can you cut ivy back or will it grow quicker if you do. My next door neighbours is growing over my wall?



If it is growing then yes cut it back. I havent noticed ours getting any more vigourous.

I keep cutting ours back and it doesn't seem to get any more vigorous. I think it's one of the plants that you have to keep on top of otherwise it tends to take over. And as we have dogs now we'll have to keep a very careful check on it as it is poisonous to them.
