Helpful Hints

The browning on Cedars could be mites (usually towards the front of the limb looks thin & on the new growth), use Safers End-All-spring & fall. If browning is on inside of limb & older growth, it could be too thick growth- all cedars should have Lime spring & fall, no matter the age – water well into fall. All cedars are heavy feeders & should be fed every 3 weeks with 20-20-20 (the blue stuff,dissolves in water) up until the end of July OR you can use a dry fertilizer for the first feed in the early spring (a proper tree & shrub fertilizer) & then continue with 20-20-20 as above, every 3 weeks.
