Thuja Hedging

Thuja or Western Red / White Cedar

So why have a thuja instead of the leylandii?

You know when you see someones conifer hedge and it's half brown and looking awful?  Well they've been a bit too keen and cut thier leyland conifer too close, and with leylandii when it's brown, it stays brown....A thuja can rebreak when this happens, so you can recover it if that happens, and it probably will in the fullness of time.  Read on there's more:

For an evergreen conifer hedge or large screen there is nothing better.  When you brush the bright green foliage the scales release an enjoyable scent of spice. The bright green new growth turns darker with age and bronzes in winter.  Thuja will grow compact and about 45-60cm each year.

There are a few different thuja options depending on the look you are after;

Thuja Emerald - this is an elegant form with tightly knit bright green foliage. Has a more defined shape

Thuja Brabant - light yellowish green foliage that takes a bronze tinge during the winter months. 

Thuja Excelsior - has dark green shiny foliage, sometimes a bronze tinge again in winter.

Thuja Atrovirens - rich green foliage

All variieties grow at a similar speed and respond well to same aftercare

Where To Site Your Thuja

Thuja is an excellent option for a conifer hedge, is to maintin and a good alternative to lylandii

How To Grow Thuja

They thrive well in shade as well as sun.

Clipping Thuja :Prune them once a year and then do a tidy up again later in the season to keep them looking smart. As they are easy to maintian it can be done with hedge cutters or shears 

Feeding Thuja's :Give them plenty of organic fertiliser in early spring to keep them looking lush.

Dislikes :They don't want to stand in water other than that they will grow anywhere and all soils. Virtually trouble free.
