Can Pulled Pachysandra Runners Be Put Back Into Soil

Question From: H. Mueller - New Milford, New Jersey, United States
Q: Hello Nancy, My Pachysandra bed was infested with a tall grass. When I dug it out al the pachysandra white runners came out with the grass' roots. If I put them back carefully, will they make new leaf growth?

A: They should do find. Mix some good quality compost with the soil and keep the area watered so the soil stays moist. Plant the Pachysandra close together and mulch with a good quality mulch. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
