I have ivy glimbing up garden wall which i would like to eradicate



the only thing that works, if its a very old ivy with big, woody stems, is to cut down as much as possible, dig around where its growing from, and treat the main, woody growths with SBK (you might want to read my blog on tree stump removal, gives a guide, and this is a similar problem, just not a tree - worse, in fact, cos there's so many woody roots and branches.)
