Easy Ivy

Words by Jessica Peace

So, there’s not much to it, get your scissors or secateurs out and snip a trailing piece off from a healthy plant.

Remove some of the leaves from the end of your cutting (or both ends if you want to root it twice) and shove it in your pot or straight into the ground. You can also lay the main stem over the compost to promote root and shoot growth here too.

Great for your gaff, Ivy helps purify the air in mouldy flats. Read our Agony Plant here.
