English Ivy (Hedera helix) produces berries when the plant is mature. If the plant is climbing a wall or trellis, the fruit may be hard to reach, since they are borne on the top-most shoots. An easier and quicker way to propagate ivy is with cuttings. They root readily in a moist, well drained medium, but must be kept in an airy, shady, yet warm, place. Easiest of all is to find someone who is willing to share their ivy, and to cut lengths of the already rooted ivy for transplanting.
