I've been hacking back some evergreen Ivy that had turned the back of a garden into a black hole. It's very established, and the trunks are thicker than trees. At this time of year it's quite something to behold, so I was wondering if anyone grew Ivy for fun, and if they trained it over a cheap long lasting something. Even a wire-framed sculpture? I get annoyed with it, but have watched it sustain the blackbirds and pigeons, so not all bad.
