Answer: The competition for water and nutrients will put your jasmine in a precarious position. The jasmine will eventually become dense enough to hide the fence. Ivy will cover the fence at a more rapid pace, but will not provide flowers as the jasmine will. Since the jasmine is already planted, why not encourage it to grow rather than put it in a race with ivy? (The ivy will win!) Pinch the jasmine back throughout the spring and summer months and it will become bushy in a few years.
