The Q&A Archives: 5 foot emerald cedar

Question: Hi! Purchased a 5 foot Emerald Cedar @ local Home Depot in spring. Should i 'cover' it? Wanted to put Xmas lites if i can. Thanks, Rick in Ottawa

Answer: Cedars grow well in Ottawa and your Emerald Cedar should be no exception. If you put lights on your tree this Christmas, use the smaller outdoor bulbs and point them away from the needles so they don't burn the foliage (or you'll end up with brown spots as a reminder of your holiday lights).

Good luck with your landscape!
