How do I encourage ivy to climb?
Pull an end of ivy off the ground, being careful not to loosen it from the soil. Lay the end up against the wall and put a piece of tape over it near the bottom. This holds the lower end of the ivy in place while you adjust the upper end. Decide on the direction you want the ivy to run and put it in position.
