Wrapping cedars is a bad idea. On warm days the internal temperature under the burlap may get too high. When it gets too warm under the wrap, the tissue that has been warmed may be damaged when the temperature drops again.The cedars may also break dormancy too early in the spring. Stake AROUND the cedar and attach the burlap to the stakes leaving a 2-3? gap between the burlap and the cedar.

- Hi looking to order some baby’s breath. Do you have any? How much?
- Hi, I bought a Dwarf Korean Lilac (tree form) from your nursery. Your website says it can grow in a container. What width and height container should I buy? Your website also says it won’t perform the same if in a container. What would be the differences? And finally what is the winter care if put in a container? Does it need any outside light during winter or anything else during winter?
- Any idea why I have about six trees out of forty that look like this? The trees right beside this one are fine but there’s a bit of red on a few of the really mature trees as well. The needles or leaves or whatever you call them aren’t really dry and dead either, just red and unhealthy? My neighbours have the same issue.
