How to take care of Vinca minor

For best results soak the roots for approx. 2 hrs. before planting and water well after planting and for the next few weeks. Vinca minor is reasonably drought-tolerant once established. Vinca minor vines require good drainage but any reasonable garden soil will do.

Vinca minor will thrive in a sunny or shaded position.

Add a general purpose fertilizer once or twice a season. You can divide Vinca minor plants or remove rooted side shoots in late autumn or winter.

As a bonus, Vinca minor vines are deer-resistant. Vinca minor is rarely troubled by insects and disease. Fungus problems may occur in humid or wet weather. If insect or disease problems occur, treat early with organic or chemical insect repellents and fungicide.

Remove any dead or dying foliage. The dead or dying foliage can be recognized from the browning or yellowing of the leaves and shriveling of the blooms. Regular pruning helps to keep control of its growth, keeping it within the desired boundary.
