With Spring just a couple of days away, snow 2 days ago and temps up near 70’ each day this week, couldn’t resist picking up another 6 of these. The more I read up on them, the more I love them.

Planted about now 30 of these a couple weeks ago and one or two of them are showing up like this and trying to identify what the issue. Very top of the tips are getting kind of a white straw like color appearance to them.

I have dug actually one of them up and the soil is damp to moist by no mean sitting in water but by no means dry.

Warmer temps have really brought out lots of new growth already.

Cannot recommends NC211’s suggestion enough of Holly Tone fertilizer along with 10 –10–10 fertilizer.

The nearly 30 Thuja Green Giants have really greened up the past couple of weeks.

Glad they’re working out for you! Keep that 10-10-10 going about 3 or 4 times a year, and they’ll likely come in quite nicely. It’ll take them about 18 months to get settled before they really start to take off. Here are a couple more before/after of mine. These were planted almost 3 years now to the day. I took the after photos this afternoon before the lawn was cut. Spaced 8 feet apart at planting, you can see how wide they’ll get. In the after photo next to the really big one, that is one of the originals from 2016 that we planted that were of the same height as the originals planted 3 years ago. They’re so big now that I have trouble getting them into frame of a picture. It’s been basically 10-10-10 the whole time. Some holly tone here and there, but that stuff stinks so bad, I prefer the 10-10-10 route instead.

If you have some TalStr-P pesticide, at a 1 ounce per gallon setting on a hose sprayer, it’ll keep bugs, mites, chiggers, and spiders off of them for months at a time. Given where you’ve planted yours, it might be a good idea to get some of that stuff and spray them and the surrounding area. They react very well to the stuff!

Do you typically keep keep the 10-10-10 applications to early spring and early fall?

I have used the Holly Tone, but will focus more on the 10-10-10.

Was actually looking to use the Bonide All Seasons Horticultural and Dormant Oil Grow Spray and/or BIOADVANCED 3 in 1 Insect, Disease, and Mite Control for Plants.

Gave them all the BioAdvanced 12-Month Tree and Shrub Protect and Feed Insect Killer and Fertilizer, 10-Pound, Granules several weeks ago.
