English Ivy, Hedera helix, can be transplanted easily by digging up a rooted section and replanting it immediately at a slightly deeper level than it was rooted before. Water well and keep the soil moist until it becomes established. Spring is a good time to do that. You can also take tip cuttings about six inches long, remove leaves from the bottom half, and stick them in a pot of dampened soilless potting mix. Put several cuttings per three or four inch pot. Set them in a shady location and keep the soil moist. They will root and can be planted in late summer. Set them a bit deeper than they grew in the pot and keep watered and mulched until they become established.
