The Q&A Archives: Watering New Vinca

Question: Do I water vinca minor from the top as in a spray type waterer or do I water at the soil level as in a soaker?

Answer: Either way will suit your vinca just fine. Young plants won't mind a shower. Established plants create a cushion of vines and a strong stream of water from a hose can mash it down a bit, so keep that in mind when watering older groundcover. I have a lot of vinca and use a wand type shower sprayer. It gets the dust off the leaves and then the water penetrates down into the soil. Hope this information helps!
