Thuja Green Giant Jumbo Gallons Description
2-3 feet tall Thuja Green Giants in 1 Gallon Containers!
No other plant can beat Thuja Green Giant for creating a colorful, evergreen privacy fence in your garden.
This rapidly growing evergreen Hedge Plant can grow over 3' per year if given copious amounts of water and fertilizer throughout the growing season.
Thuja Green Giant is also extremely adaptable to a wide range of growing conditions and will thrive in both sandy and heavy clay garden soils!
Green Giant also has intensely fragrant foliage that makes wonderful cut branches for Holiday arrangements!
Fertilizing: We use Osmocote Slow-Release Fertilizer, available at any good garden center. Place 2 tablespoons in bottom of each hole prior to planting. This feeds your Thuja all year long & is only done once per year.
Long-blooming Knock Out Roses, drought-proof Sedums, & easy Ornamental Grasses make perfect companion plants to Thuja Green Giant.
Thuja Green Giant thrives in full sun to part shade. Foliage grows right down to the ground and can be sheared to desired shape. A simple shearing once a year is all it takes to keep this colorful, adaptable, and fragrant evergreen shrub in bounds!
Green Giant Thuja even thrives in the intense heat and humidity of Atlanta, Georgia and can tolerate prolonged periods of drought after it becomes established!
Arborvitaes such as Thujas are more drought tolerant than Leyland Cypress with denser, more attractive foliage. Superb alternative to Hemlock in the north.

Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
Soil: Best grown in moist, fertile, well-drained soils. Tolerates somewhat wide range of soils and some dry conditions. Poorly drained and wet sites should be avoided, and it is very salt-sensitive.
Light: Full sun (6 hrs direct light daily), Partial sun/shade (4-6 hrs light daily)
Water: Keep moist, but do not over water. Appreciates well-drained soil.
Spacing: 3 - 5 ft
Fertilizing: Top dress in spring with a slow release, balanced fertilizer.
Winterizing: Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder zones. Tolerates wind once established and withstands heavy ice or snow. Darkens or bronzes slightly in the winter. Note -- The oldest, interior branchlets on an arborvitae normally turn brown and fall off in autumn. This aging process is different from drought stress, which on arborvitae appears on the tree outside the interior foliage as an abnormal yellowing or browning, known as flagging. This discoloration may not appear until a season or two after the drought stress was most severe.
Maintenance & Pruning: Requires little or no pruning but can be sheared easily if necessary. When pruning is necessary, it is recommended to only trim back the new growth of the current season, other than to remove any die back.
ReviewsWrite a reviewKeep up the Good WorkKurt K | May 4, 2017I received my order of 15 trees yesterday. The trees are in great shape and larger than I expected, much appreciated. You have a great website that is easy to navigate, awesome prices and great service....Keep up the good work.
More than I could ask forJeff Lazewski | Apr 19, 2017I bought 10 green giants last spring. The trees took to the soil very well and are doing great! I ordered 45 more trees and just received them. The trees are well over 3 ft tall. Some over 4 ft. I also had a bunch of questions and their customer service was great! Answered all my questions and answered very quick. I could not be happier. I would highly recommend great garden plants!
Wonderful Thuja Green GiantsCheryl H. | Jan 9, 2017This email is long overdue...I made a purchase of your Thuja Green Giants in 2013. I had to reschedule my order delivery twice. Then I increased the order to a total of 20 of these trees. The trees were in absolute perfect condition, as well as perfectly packed for shipping. I haven't lost one! They are everything you advertise! I have wanted to send this THANK YOU for some time. Also, all the assistance I received from the lady I dealt with on the phone during my ordering, rescheduling, increasing the quantity of the order, to actual delivery...she was so very helpful, gracious and patient.
Green GiantsNarina W | Jan 6, 2017"Just to follow up- ALL my Thujas have grown and done well. I ordered 1 gallon Thujas from another company- and while they were in great shape and much cheaper- they were significantly smaller than the ones that you get at Great Garden Plants. If you're looking for true jumbo 1 gallon Thujas, I would say Great Garden Plants are a good choice for a larger start."
Great Plants!!Donna M | Nov 15, 2012Just spent a gorgeous fall afternoon here in WV planting the 9 Thuja Green Giant trees! Hope they do well and grow fast! Just wanted to let you kn-w that my husband and I wree very pleased with the Thujas…size, packaging, quality of the plants, etc!! I'm sure I will be doing more business with you next spring!
