Help me save my transplanted Vinca Minor
Hi there -
I transplanted a bunch of vinca minor from someone who wanted to get rid of it. It was really healthy where it was, but it was growing in lots of pine needles, pine cones and sticks. So when we dug it up, the roots came out, but no dirt came with it. There was so much of it and with out the dirt, it was so light we rolled it up like sod. I loosened the dirt where I wanted to plant it and laid it out, trying to wiggle the plant to bury the roots in the ground. I sprinkled compost over it, and tried to work it down to the roots. I've been watering it every day, sometimes twice a day. Some of it is doing pretty well, some of it is pretty dry. I was wondering if I should use some kind of gentle fertilizer that won't burn the foliage to stimulate root growth? Or maybe I can pull it up again, water the soil really good, scoop up the moistened soil and smush it onto the roots before I put it back? Any suggestions? I would really appreciate any help.
