The Q&A Archives: English Ivy

Question: Just trying to get a ground cover growing. What animal is feasting on my ivy?

Answer: You didn't give too many clues to go on! Rabbits will munch on ivy, as will slugs and snails. Control for either can be difficult; you'll have to cage the plants to keep them safe from rabbits. Snail bait or traps are usually effective against slugs and snails.

Best wishes with your groundcover!
