Thereof, what is the best fertilizer for green giants?
For your Thuja Green Giant plants you need a fertilizer that has a high first number, and the other two should be equal or lower than that nitrogen number. Numbers like 10-8-6, or 15-5-10, or 20-20-20 are all good formulas to use.
Beside above, how often should you fertilize Green Giant arborvitae? Generally, Thuja Green Giants don't need to be fertilized. But you can give your Thujas a boost once or twice a year with a well-balanced, slow release fertilizer, like formula 10-10-10 or 14-14-14.
Also, should I fertilize Green Giant arborvitae?
You should fertilize your arborvitae during the growing season. Offer the first feeding just before new growth begins. Fertilize at the intervals recommended on the container. Stop fertilizing arborvitae one month before the first frost in your region.
How do you fertilize arborvitae trees?
Healthy arborvitae benefit most from annual fertilizer applied in early spring before new growth begins. Use slow-release, granular fertilizer with a higher first number, such as 12-6-4 or 10-8-6. Broadcast granules at a rate of one-third pound for each foot of the plant's height.
