Emerald Cedar: Thuja occidentalis - BBC Pot 200CM Tall
Thuja occidentalis 'Emerald' is a compact evergreen tree with vibrant green foliage. It has a narrow and pyramidal form, making it an excellent choice for hedges, screens, and borders.
Caring for Thuja, commonly known as Arborvitae or Cedar, involves providing it with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. Thuja thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers well-draining soil. Plant it in a location with good air circulation to prevent fungal diseases. Water the tree deeply but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Established Thuja trees are relatively drought-tolerant but benefit from regular watering during dry spells. Mulching around the base of the tree helps retain moisture and suppress weeds. Prune the tree as needed to maintain its shape and remove any dead or damaged branches. Fertilize the tree in early spring with a balanced slow-release fertilizer to promote healthy growth. Thuja trees are generally hardy and pest-resistant, but monitor for any signs of pests or diseases and take appropriate measures if needed. With proper care, your Thuja will provide you with evergreen foliage and serve as an attractive addition to your landscape.
