Q.Make Tatertot Thus Grow Faster

Zone 28677 | Anonymous added on August 21, 2021 | Answered

I’m having a hard time with keeping evergreen interest in my cottage style garden. Tatertot thuja would be perfect, however I can only find starter plants (4.5″ tall). They take roughly 2yrs to get to mature height (2′) is there any way to make them grow a little faster (more like a year and a half) or do you know of anywhere I can order almost mature sized tatertot thuja? Thank you for your time!

No, unfortunately, that two year period is what you will expect if the shrub is cared for perfectly. In fact, it is likely that it can take slightly longer depending on the care. As far as where to purchase- We do not recommend specific places.

We can, however, offer a collection of articles that will help you with the care of Thuja shrubs:
