I would be grateful if you would tell me how to kill ivy please as it's climbing up my fence and causing it to rot. Thanks, Neal Galbally

Your 2 options are to cut it down and try to dig it out or cut it down and spray the open wounds with herbicide. Triclopyr is often necessary. There is a third option which is to cut it down and re-cut new sprouts every 2 weeks until the roots are exhausted. It will be easier to remove from the fence if you wait until the branches are dried out.
