I have blackberries in my English Ivy. I have purchased Lilly Miller Blackberry and Brush Killer. Is it okay to use this in my Ivy?

Brush killer is a broad-spectrum herbicide and will kill on contact - including your ivy. To save the ivy, dig it out and remove it from the bed you plan to treat with herbicide, or cut the blackberries down instead of using an herbicide. It's a difficult situation, and most herbicides that will effectively control the brambles will also kill the ivy. Wish there were an easier solution!
