Thuja Plant Care

Keep the soil evenly moist from spring until the soil freezes in fall. Consistent watering is especially important during the first 2 years. Requires a well-drained soil. Fertilize lightly with a balanced fertilizer every spring. Sprinkle the granules around the base of each plant before new growth emerges and water immediately to move the fertilizer into the root zone. No pruning necessary.
