will creeping ivy kill any new plants or shrubs introduced into the same vicinity?



Not if you keep it under control

Hint: snip snip.

I agree with Kev (Buffriddler), (great name by the way!!!). If you don't keep on top of it it can smother small plants and it will take over. It also takes a lot of goodness from the soil so feed your plants that are nearby.
