Ivy usually grows well without any coaxing but if you want yours to cover a fence, all you need to do is prune it back a little. Wherever you prune, two stems will develop so you'll get better coverage in a shorter period of time. Be sure to water on a regular basis to encourage healthy growth. Enjoy your garden!
