Pachysandra prefers soil that is moist but well-drained, shaded, and well amended with organic matter. Newly planted Pachysandra needs some mulch to retain moisture, but mulch is not necessary once the plant is established. Use no more than 1 inch of new, fine or medium shredded mulch. Once the Pachysandra spreads and fills in, no more mulch should be needed.
