If watering wasn’t the problem, look closely at the dead foliage for bagworms. I’m in Athens and have found them on several troubled thuja. If you find them, clean up all of the debris, and spray it with an approved insecticide. You’ll have to find that info yourself.

As far as Powis Castle goes, sometimes they die from pruning too hard. I learned that the hard way. They tend to look bad when they get overgrown. I rarely use that plant anymore. Just throw away the dead one and try something else.
Thanks, Ellie!

They are hanging in there and we recently received some helpful rainfall. I'm planning to fertilize it in the Spring and will keep an eye out for bagworms. If you have any fertilizer recommendations, I welcome them.
