Planting Tips & Care for Arborvitae evergreen shrubs:
Arborvitae (thuja) evergreen shrubs have similar needs & care as their taller arborvitae tree relatives.
Care and maintenance for Arborvitae evergreen shrubs is pretty basic, making them popular for many uses. Arborvitae evergreen shrubs are fairly drought tolerant once established and insect resistant.
Make sure to plant your Arborvitae shrub in soil that is well-prepared with a mix of top soil and/or manure with the native soil. Arborvitae shrubs do best in full or partial sun, and make certain to include a good evergreen compost or fertilizer toward the start of each developing season to energize root growth. Mulching is always a good idea to help hold moisture. If you want to prune your arborvitae evergreen shrubs, trimming should happen right off the bat in the spring before any new development begins to grow.
