I live in Richmond, VA and have fairly large areas of mature ivy (likely English). The areas with shade are doing well, the area with more sun, in the last year or so, has been invaded by honeysuckle (I believe the Japanese type, no blossoms). Any suggestions how to better control it, without removing the mature ivy it is embedded in? I just used a weed wacker to get the upper layer off, but this also takes much of the ivy.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
