Watch for English Ivy seed heads

Ivy Seed Heads, November
Ivy berries are forming now, and ripen through the winter and spring. When the seeds are ripe they fill out and turn purple.

Now is a good time to cut seed heads off and safely dispose of them --- before they mature and are eaten by birds (which then can infest other areas).
