I bought five of them on September 2019 and I cover them for winter as I was told at your store. Now, I just took the cover off and they are totally brown. What I should do? They will be green again?
Slice into a part of a main branch. If it is green or moist, it is still alive and may grow green.

How far apart do you suggest to plant them? I’m looking to use them for a hedging.
3-4 feet apart, actually. They grow to about 4-feet wide.

How tall are these when you buy them. I need around 4ft tall when planted .... would this be close ?
What is the maximum growing height of these trees?
Can you leave them in large planter pots?
How tall are these cedars? The pot size does not really tell much...
How tall when I buy it?
Emerald Cedar 5-Gallon Container is rated out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Kristen_young from Signficant investment lost - hearbreaking Purchased 16 of these trees at the start of spring. Rented a trailer, purchased transplanter, and paid a landscaper to dig the holes. After approximately two months they are all dead. Now I’m out the cost of the trees, transplanter and labour. I am very disappointed as they were planted according to the instructions and watered with a soaker hose. I probably will lose all my mulch after they are dug up and then what do I do with them? Very disappointed and feel like the money was ripped from my wallet. Can’t afford to pay someone to dig them up and rent a trailer to return them either. Heartbreaking experience.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Garden snake from Emerald Cedar 10 gallon I wasted my time taking a chance on 3 of the 6 foot tall cedars in the garden center. $79 each. Planted the same as last years, which are fine. Bone meal and premium soil. Started turning brown, and dead after 6 weeks.
