Hello All Please allow me to introduce myself. My family and I have recently moved into a new house that features some lovely perennial gardens that the previous owner had spent a lot of time on. I've always enjoyed some light gardening, but now find myself literally in over my head. I've picked up a number of books on perennials, and have used a lot of web resources to help me with what I need to know to keep these gardens up to the best of my ability. From what I could see of this site, it looks like a helpful resource. I am currently dealing with hydrangeas, hibiscus, various lilies, dianthus, bleeding heart, peonies, coneflowers, hostas and two ivy's, Boston and English. There are others I've yet to identify, and please forgive me for not using the proper latin identifiers, it's all I can do to keep track of the common names. The issue that I've come here with today is that I have a beautiful, and fairly young Boston Ivy on the corner of my brick house. It extends from ground to eaves and is about 4 feet wide. A pending addition of a fence will mean that I have to "pull off" some of the vines from the wall as they are in the way. The fence will incorporate a trellis that I could then train these particular vines to, leaving the rest on the wall. Can I simply (and carefully) pull the vines I need to move from the wall, or will this harm the overall health of the plant? If some of the suckers get pulled off, will they grow back? Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
