Q.Why Is Part Of My Ivy Dying Back
Two areas of my ivy have died back for unknown reasons. I planted the ivy back in 1981 and have never seen this before. Appreciate any help. Thanks Joe

There are a number of causes that could lead to this. It could be bacterial, fungal, or viral.
Because it has been established with no issue for a long period, I am less likely to assume that this is to improper care.
Copper fungicides will be the best option in this case. With the exceptions of viral issues, it will take care of most microbial issues.
