How to cover a slope with ivy cuttings
I have ivy growing locally in the hedges and trees beside my house - if I snip off little cuttings with the roots and plant them directly onto a stoney/grass slope in my garden will they grow? This area is unsightly and I wish for the ivy to take over fast and cover the ground. It is also a very exposed slop facing south. I have a cotoneaster with red berries growing here - if i pin parts of the low branches into the ground will they root and produce new bushes? If there is anything else I can do to cover this cheaply and simply please let me know! Thanks.
