Flowering Vinca

My flowering vinca annuals are not doing well. They are planted in full sun but the leaves are turning yellow. I water every other day. There are small (chipmunk size) holes in the soil next to many of the plants. Help!

Vinca

Can you save a frost bitten vinca and, if so, how? Also, how about a frost bitten honeysuckle?

Vinca minor (periwinkle) is planted in the spring after all dangers of frost.

Herbicide Ithat Will Not Kill Periwinkle

What herbicide is available that will not kill periwinkle? I want to establish periwinkle as a ground cover but weeds and grasses overwhelm the periwinkle.

You pretty much have two choices which are to pull the weeds by hand or carefully paint, with a small artist paintbrush, the foliage of the weeds with a herbicide such as glyphosate, being careful not to touch the periwinkle. You should also put a few inches of mulch around your periwinkle to suppress unwanted weeds.

Control Soil Erosion and Weeds on a Steep Hillside

How do I control soil erosion and weeds on a steep hillside? I am getting all the brush removed. I plan on planting vinca minor but want to help with soil erosion in meantime and prevent unwanted weeds until the vinca minor grows in.

Vinca

I planted some Vinca plants…Some are doing great, others not so good. The ones not doing so good look wilted like they are not getting enough water, but I am giving them all the same amount. I have fertilized with Miracle Grow twice since I have planted them but don’t understand why some are doing great and some are dying. Can you give me some advice?

Make sure that the plants are adequately watered by checking the soil. New planting should be maintained in moist soil until the roots become established.
Over watering could also be an issue, the wilting could be due to too much moisture and if the soil is not draining can lead to root rot.

I would avoid fertilizing the plants until you see active growth on the plants.
Excess fertilizer could harm the plants, excess nitrogen will also cause lack of flowering.
