Q.English Ivy In Clay Soil

Zone UK | soniabouadloun added on May 13, 2020 | Answered

We bought a new build house and they gave us a « living wall » as a garden fence. It is beautiful and we would like to keep it however it is struggling. It has been in the ground 2 years now but the area is heavy clay. It would be a huge undertaking to attempt to lift it all out to add compost to the soil. Is there another way to improve its health?

Earthworms! If you can't dig the ground, earthworms can loosen it and add some texture to the soil.

Be sure to mulch for them, so that they have a place to hide from the sun.
