My vinca minor has numerous yellow leaves this year. My husband keeps dumping water on it, thinking it needs more since it is yellow and at some instances brown. Are we watering it too much, or is it missing a nutrient that needs to be added? HELP!

Overwatering can sometimes cause yellowing in leaves, and might even cause some root rot that would result in dead leaves. Check the soil moisture before watering again. The top inch of soil should feel dry, and the next couple of inches only slightly moist before adding more water.
Vinca minor performs best in shade. If a tree or other shade-providing structure has been removed, the leaves may be "sunburned" or scorched.
It also prefers soil rich in organic matter. Topdress the area with a fine compost to sustain soil structure and health.

- I purchased a white and pink dog wood from the nursery at Lowe's. We planted it according to directions about two weeks ago and I don't see any new growth on it at all yet. I broke off a few small twigs and it is still green. They are only about 4 feet high and were in pots when purchased. There were no leaves on them only bare branches. How long does it take to see if they are growing properly since they are guaranteed if they die. Thank you
