It is very common vertical evergreen tree grow as hedges/screen.  Very easy to grow.  Winter hardy and drought tolerant once established.   USDA Zones:2-8. Mature size:10′-12′(H) X 4′-8′(W).  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location.  Water well after planting until the roots adopt the ground.   It is needed to water them in dry winter.  Trimming once a while to control height and width can keep them the best shape!

非常常見用於綠籬的直立型常綠樹種.  非常容易栽種.  生長適應後很耐寒耐旱.  成熟株高10-12呎,寬幅4-8呎.  最好種在全日照到半日照處. 剛種下要注意給水充份.  冬天乾冷時有必要給水.  偶爾修剪以控制高度及寬幅是必要的以使植株能維持在最佳狀態!

Building Cedar Planters For Edibles 釘建蔬果種植區

Building Cedar Planters For Edibles 釘建蔬果種植區
2013-03-30 017 (Medium)2013-03-30 012 (Medium)
Going to build four cedar planters in total. Due to the weather and time we so far only built two.

The trick of these planters is to seperate the original ground from the planter soil because the tree roots are everywhere in the garden.

Construction was as follows:
– the two 4’x 8′ sized planters were framed with 4×4 lumber as a rectangle
– then 6 short 7″ height 4″ X 4″ feet were added for each planter (connected with angles)
– covered with cedar planks on sides and top
– laid down and stapled the pond liner on inside the planter to seperate the ground then layer
– stapled the landscape fabric

The next steps will be to fill with good clean soil and then plant the seedlings that I have been growing indoors.

The price is not cheap for the materials but they look good and will last many years!

If you are lucky and able to plant in the ground, that is great and cheap! If not, plan it out for the cost and size you want. The most important thing is protect your crop from animal damage.
