Care Information

Aftercare Advice for Thuja occidentalis 'Smaragd':

  • Newly planted conifers need regular watering to prevent browning - once established they are drought proof.
  • Remove weeds as soon as they appear and mulch well to reduce water loss.

Planting advice for your Thuja 'Smaragd':

  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Sprinkle on some Root grow to help establish a sound root system.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

 

Pruning advice for your Thuja:

  • No pruning is required although you can clip to retain its height from spring to late summer, just avoid cutting into old wood.
  • If your plant gets too tall for where you have planted it, clip the top to keep it at the required height.
