My parents told me you can use pachysandra that you already have to start a new growth area? Any idea on how to do this?

I would like help on growing pachysandra also. I've had some in for two years and it's just not doing good.

Frank, dig into an established bed of pachysandra (at the edge), & gently pull out a few plants. Move them to the new area. Where you removed the plants will fill back in on its own.

I also have used the above method that SB suggested . . . and put the freshly removed plants to flower pots, to let them grow a bit b/f transplanting.
