Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Berckman's Gold in well-draining soil and in a spot that receives full sun with a bit of shade (around 6 hours of direct sunlight daily). Place in a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root ball. There's no need to amend the soil, but you can add a thick layer of mulch around the base of the tree for weed prevention.
If you plan to install Berckman’s Gold Arborvitae in rows or groups, plant each specimen at least 3 feet apart.
2. Watering: Make sure your Berckman's Gold Arborvitae receives water weekly while it is establishing. Rain is usually enough to keep it hydrated after that, but you'll need to water it if you experience a period of drought.
3. Pruning and Fertilizing: An incredibly low-maintenance tree, there is no pruning, fertilizing or disease management needed for the Berckman's Gold Arborvitae. You can prune as desired for creating a hedge, but it is not necessary. Similarly, fertilizer isn't required, but you can fertilize yearly in spring with a slow-release fertilizer if desired.
