Emerald Green Arbovitae from Costco
First and foremost, thanks for such an informative forum.
I'm having a fence put in around a pool and will be using emerald green arborvitae as a privacy screen. Costco has their annual sale of plants and I picked up 24 5' arborvitae from them. I've had them since sunday and they will not be planted until the weekend of april 14th.
I'll also be picking up about 36 more of them tomorrow. I have approx. 203 feet of fence to line with these, so figured 60ish arborvitae planted 3' on center.
Couple of questions:
1) does the 3' spacing sound fine or do i need to change it since my intention is to use them for a privacy wall/hedge.
2) The arborvitae are in plastic pots from Costco. Ive been watering them daily. Is there anything else i need to/should do to ensure their survival until they can be planted?
3) When I plant them, should I mix in miracle grow tree n' shrub top soil to give them a boost?
Thanks in advance!
