How do I transplant ivy from one location to another at this time of year? Should I try to root my ivy starts in water, in pots(inside) until spring or in the ground outside now?? Any advice would be appreciated. Or do you have a suggestion for another type of vine that will attach to lattice to provide privacy & will grow well in the shade of a large oak tree. Something that flowers would be great!!
