Planting Instruction for best results;

1. Before you plant, mulch the area. As this will help keep the moisture in the soil and also keep the erosion at bay from the run off when you water.
2. Plant the vinca in clusters of 2 pots/plugs per hole. This will make it easier to water as you only have to keep 25 spots wet.
3. Make a little well around each planting, like a saucer, so when you water the water stays around the plant and gets soaked into that spot.
4. When you water, fill each well or saucer up with water twice . Let the first watering soak in then come back and do it again.
5. With this method every other day of watering will keep things moist and allow them to establish.
