How to care for Tate

This plant comes in a 2 gallon pot. Thuja occidentalis 'Smaragd', commonly known as Emerald Green Arborvitae, is a popular evergreen shrub or small tree widely used in landscaping for its attractive, dense, and vibrant green foliage. To ensure its optimal growth and health, plant this Thuja in well-draining soil and a location with full to partial sun exposure. Regular watering is essential, especially during the establishment period, but ensure not to overwater as Thuja species are susceptible to root rot. Pruning may be necessary to maintain its desired shape, typically done in early spring. Additionally, applying a balanced fertilizer in the spring can help promote vigorous growth. With proper care, Thuja occidentalis will thrive as an attractive addition to any landscape, providing year-round interest and beauty.
