Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a planting location in full sun to partial sunlight (4 to 6 hours of sunlight per day).
Dig a hole twice the diameter of the tree's root system. Spread the tree's roots gently out in the hole. Fill the hole in with a mixture of soil and organic matter such as compost. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Tamp the soil down around the shrub’s roots to remove any air pockets.
Spread a three-inch layer of mulch such as bark chips, pine needles, or peat moss beneath the shrub to help the soil retain water and also keep weeds away from the shrub.
2. Watering: Keep the soil moist but not overly waterlogged around your tree. During the hotter months, you should water once a week unless you have received any rain. After the summer season, your normal rainfall should be sufficient unless there is an extended period of drought.
3. Fertilizing: The Degroot's Thuja benefits from an annual springtime application of general-purpose, balanced lawn fertilizer. Follow the instructions on the fertilizer for application ratios.
4. Pruning: To shape your tree, you can shear it in the late winter to early spring months.
