I planted 500 vinca minor bare root plants mid summer in Connecticut. The area is a shady, tree covered hill.

Lately the leaves from the trees are falling on top of the vinca, and I'm wondering if that is what is causing some damage to the vinca leaves. Please see the photos. The leaves are very big and they certainly trap moisture.

Should I cut off any affected vinca leaves with damage? Is it ok to use a leaf blower to clean out the tree leaves, or will I damage to the shoots that are spreading from the vinca plants? Is there anything I can do to strengthen these plants before winter?

Thanks for any advice!!

Welcome to the forum @lazarusgxp. Please don't worry about the vinca, it is as tough as old boots. The falling leaves will do no harm at all, and the damage on the leaves will be due to a few little creatures having a munch.
May I ask which variety of vinca you chose :)
