This is actually Vinca, not pachysandra. I jut had pachysandra on my mind when I wrote this. I have a large bed of vinca on a fairly steep hill. A couple years ago I had a roof done and they really trampled it. It has mostly come back except for a 1' wide path leading up to a 6' x 6' area which it seems to refuse to grow into. My guess is that when they trampled it all the decent dirt washed away. What would be the best way to go about getting some growth in the area. My thoughts were put down peat, mulch, topsoil, and/or fertilizer (maybe something else?). Then turn the soil over to mix it up so the decent stuff can't just wash on down the hill. I also have some vinca growing wild in a wooded area behind my house. Can I transplant this into the bed to help it fill in faster? How should I did it out/divide it? I also do have an area of pachysandra that was stepped on in the same manor. Now it doesn't want to come back. I was just going to buy some and replant as the area is pretty small. Is there any fertilizer I should use? Should I throw mulch or something in the beds?
