Planting and Care
PLANTING, Best time for planting your Berckman’s Gold Arborvitae is from early spring to early fall right before frost of winter arrives. Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is parallel with the ground level, Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated upright, use the excavated soil to back fill around the root ball, gently press down as you fill the hole and thoroughly soak with a hose to ensure air pockets are eliminated, Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball. A 2-3 inch layer of organic hardwood mulch is strongly recommended, it will help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply the mulch over the entire planting area.
LIGHT, Select an area with FULL SUN
WATER your Arborvitae during the first two months twice a week, increase in extreme hot days, reduce water frequency to once a week for the remaining of the year. You should always verify the top 2-3 inches of soil, if dry to the touch is time to water.
FERTILIZE your cypress trees during spring before new growth begins, Applying a slow-release, 180 days duration, well balance fertilizer is probably the simplest solution and least expensive.
