Help with IVY using as a screen over Hawthorn
I have hawthorn hedges up to 7 feet high. In winter they are not good for screening but ivy has grown in places and it is very effective in the winter months. I think the best type has small spikes with heads on as well as smallish leaves is it Irish Ivy? What is cheapest way of buying or getting more? I need to cover about 400 feet.
This type is not as smothering as the wider leaf ivy. Any tips on making sure the Irish type does not strangle the hawthorn.
