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.

Arborvitaes such as Thujas are more drought tolerant than Leyland Cypress with denser, more attractive foliage. Superb alternative to Hemlock in the north.

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. Water 1 inch a week. 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.
