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."
