Q.Is There Any Way You Could Include Information About The Invasive Status Of Certain Plants In Relevant Posts?

Anonymous added on December 12, 2021 | Answered

I saw a recent article you posted about propagating English Ivy, and as a practitioner of ecological restoration in the Philadelphia area, I am concerned about the potential to mislead readers into assuming the ecological benevolence of ivy due to the absence of information about its invasive status in certain areas of the US. It would be greatly appreciated if you would consider including this information where it is relevant, or suggesting it only be cultivated for use as a houseplant, so that the landscapes and gardens we so love remain healthy as well as beautiful.

Yes, I will forward this to the editor. I have seen aggressiveness indicated in other articles, as well as their toxic status, so thank you for pointing this out.
