Plant spacing is based on the ultimate width of the plants. This figure is normally given as a range; for example, 3-5’. If you live in a cold climate and/or want plants to fill in more quickly, plan to space at the shorter end of the range. If you live in a warm climate, are on a limited budget, or are willing to wait longer for plants to touch, use the higher end of the range. Using the larger number is recommended when calculating distance from a building or structure. There’s really no such thing as "maximum spacing": if you don’t want your plants to touch, you can space them as far apart as you’d like. All plant spacing is calculated on center, or in other words, the centers of the plants are spaced one half of their eventual width apart:
Unless you are planting in a straight line, as you might for hedges or edging, space your plants in a staggered or zig-zag pattern for a more interesting and naturalistic look:

I gotta say I wasn't sure these little Boston Ivy plants would grow when I put them in the ground a couple of months ago. But they really, really took off. They look AMAZING!!! Oh my gosh. Couldn't be happier!!!!
My Boston Ivy plants arrived well-packed and in excellent condition. Already been two weeks in the ground and all are thriving. Can't wait for the next few years when these darlings take off. Thanks.
Admittedly we don't have them in the ground yet. However, we transplanted them into a pig container. I followed the instructions exactly. Some plants appear to be OK, and some do not. Time will tell, Will get them all in the ground this weekend.
It looks like there is still some time to decide if these plants will be satisfactory for you. If you are finding that they are just not taking, feel free to contact email@example.com with your order number and photos of the plants. We offer a 60-day guarantee on our plants, so as long as you are within that timeframe you should be taken care of. Even if you are out of the timeframe, be sure to contact customer service to see if they can lend you any help.
I immediately planted the plants as soon as they arrived. Only 1 of them looks like it might survive. the others were badly wilted and dried out upon arrival and have since withered to nothing.

My Boston Ivy was received and planted in the Fall. It quickly died. I waited till Spring to verify that it was truly beyond hope. By then it was outside the window to get a replacement.
