How To Care

The Morgan Chinese Arborvitae is an easy plant to grow. Look forward to disease and pest resistance in this hardy evergreen. Once established these slow growing shrubs are drought tolerant.

Plant your arborvitae in full to part sun. This conifer is adaptable to various soil types and environmental conditions. Fertilize when planting and once yearly in spring with our balanced, slow release fertilizer. There is no need to prune your arborvitae. It maintains a naturally clean shape without trimming.

Thujas do need to be watered heavily at time of planting. Be sure not to let your new trees dry out within the first few months before they are established. Water deeply about 2 times per week rather than smaller amounts several times per week. This ensures that the roots grow properly. We recommend watering your trees as soon as they arrive even before you plant them. This will ensure that the roots are moist and ready for planting. Adding 2 inches of mulch is a great choice for newly planted Arborvitaes. This will help keep the soil moist during the crucial early period when the roots are acclimating to their new home. Watering in times of drought will encourage faster growth and a healthier plant.

Pretty satisfied

For the most part pretty satisfied, but would suggest you have written instructions on the boxes for the delivery people. Like, “Don’t stand on end”, The blueberry shrub has some broken branches because the long, narrow box was standing on end with the blueberry shrub hanging upside down with the branches smashed into the Morgan Arborvitae. Just a suggestion for better delivery.......... otherwise the plants are beautiful, service prompt, and electronic communications great.
