The Q&A Archives: Reshape Arbortitae Dwarf Teddy

Question: Hi. We planted 20+ Arborvitae Dwarf Teddy along the line of our flower bed. While some of them have nice round shape, others are collapsing under their own weight. How can I make them as nice as other round ones? I would appreciate your advice. Thank you, Minami

Answer: Teddy grows slowly to just 1 foot tall and 2 feet wide. Gently shear for perfect spheres or allow it to mature naturally into versatile oval shape. Spring is the best time to shear your arborvitaes but you can cut back errant branches now.

Best wishes with your landscape.
