A previous owner must have been an ivy fan. We have more varieties than you can shake a stick atπŸ˜•
I've just come across one with frilly leaves. Does anyone know what variety it is?

    I love ivy and have seven named varieties in my garden, plus the plain old wild one.  I bought them from a nursery called Fibrex which specialises in ivy.  If you look at their online catalogue, you can probably identify most of yours.

    Thanks @josusa47. There's one I particularly like that produces a lot of pure white  /cream leaves. I try to be careful when I'm hacking to make sure all but the rampant weedy one doesnt take over.  But the weedy one produces the most blossom (is that what it's called?)/ berries so I have to be careful of that one too.  I'm not the most pernickerty gardener, so I tend to just cut off the ground horizontals and the sticky out bits.
    I find green plants restful . Ferns and ivy and sometimes even the dreaded euphorbia wulfenii

    Green is undoubtedly the most pleasing colour in a garden @B3 ; :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
