potted ivy losing leaves help!

My pot of ivy has lost a lot of leaves (about a handful, more than half). I've been away the past week but I thought ivy was a pretty hardy plant so it would be ok. Basically the leaves have browned and fallen off. Any help??!

Re: potted ivy losing leaves help!

I don't know where you are located- I am in the deep south. My largest ivy is in my house in a south facing window. At this time of year, it loses leaves-I cut it back (way back), and in a couple weeks new growth, better growth will start.
