Q.Cedar tree care

Zone 30223 | Maddmary17 added on November 2, 2016 | Answered

I have a Patty Faye Deodar Cedar that was bought and used last Christmas. We have tried to keep it alive to possibly use again this year. We have really just been watering it every other day since we haven’t had any rain lately. Do you have any tips to help it to plump on the next few weeks? I know with pictures it is hard to tell, but I am sending a picture of now and when we bought it last year.

A slow-release fertilizer could help, but don't apply more than the recommended amount to avoid burning the tree. Evergreens generally need less fertilizer than deciduous trees, but they do need some:


If it does start growing again to a similar size as it was when you bought it, it should be moved to a larger pot to allow it to grow larger.
