We had a very nice customer update us on how his Thuja Green Giants were growing. He get them in the ground in April 2009. They were our 1 gallon plants (which are looking extra robust this year). This is when his plants will be hitting their stride. They are already 9 feet tall but will be filling out and giving him a nice border for his property very soon. He did have one die in a spot that didn't have any drainage..most plants just don't like being wet all the time. It causes root rot.
