Q.My Creeping Jenny Groundcover Turns Brown On Top Of The Growth, What Can I Do?

Zone Antioch, CA, 94531 | Anonymous added on March 20, 2022 | Answered

I planted creeping jenny around my moss rock wall between the grass and the stones. It grows but turns brown rapidly after growth. I have pruned it back and in doing so, I saw alot of bugs, (Pill/ spiders/ ants and earwigs), I sprayed for the bugs in case they were any part of the problem. The water from the grass seems to drain well, but there are some spots where it is always wet in and around the creeping jenny.
