How do you grow a cedar tree?
 
Planting watering and fertilizing cedar trees :
 
Add bone meal to the potting soil mix to stimulate root growth.

Hold with one hand the top of the cedar to keep it straight and compact the soil with the foot around the conifer.

Water your cedar hedge in the first 2 weeks after planting.

Do not water if rain.

Once well rooted, cedars can tolerate drought (like where they grow in their natural environment).

You can let the rain do its job!

Time the planting appropriately
 
Planting watering and fertilizing cedar trees :
 
Prune young cedars the year after planting. This gives them shape and brings density to the foliage.

For the next years:

►One pruning early in spring (before new growth appears)

►An other one in september if needed
