Q.Cedar Trees Dying
We planted a cedar hedge, but they died. Tried again this year. We followed all the advice given us. Improved drainage with drainage pipes, correct spacing apart, planted a bit higher off ground with root ball still in the sack cloth. Have a drip hose. Drainage working well. Used bonemeal and good soil. Yet one tree has already died the season and one is not looking good. What on earth are we doing wrong??

The cloth sack probably needs to come off. Are they in full sun? Also make sure they aren't getting too much water. Another possibility is that the previous trees died of a soil borne disease and the organisms survive in the soil and are infecting the new trees.
