Triple 10 no earlier than next May after transplanting and fall next year would be better.

Super thrive will push the roots. Use @ 3 oz per 100 gallons when planting and 1 oz per 50 gallons each month.

Arbs are not really able to be pushed.

I wouldn't get too worried about less than 6 hours of sunlight, either. They do just fine in the shade. Maybe not as thick, but they will grow.

I would also tend to disagree that topping an arb is going to kill it. Arbs are quite different than a pine or spruce. At least in MI they are, I've seen and topped quite a few arbs over the years without problems.

I've seen huge hedgerows of Arbs topped significantly- I would not advocate doing so for aesthetic reasons, but it will not kill them.

10" Arbs? LOL... it's going to be while before they block streetlights.

Thats the best news I've heard all day Mark
I took pictures all day at different times and though the sun has changed angle this late in the season I could swear mid summer I have sun in this area from 12ish till about 4 PM then the house starts to shade the sun.

Without posting all the pics, today 1:15 till 3 PM they would get direct sunlight where I want to put them, 2 feet out from the window in the landscaping. The Rose of Sharons have done great here but we didn't plant those, they were there when we bought the house. They do good in the shade area and bloom all summer.

Here yu go


As you can see I got two sets of stakes, one up close to the house and one out in the grass where both tree's would go. Hard to see the stake to the right of the back Rose of sharon but its there.

Thanks again Duekster
Let me make sure I understand you, triple 10 but not before next May?

By the way, set out some mums in the landscaping down by the oak tree's I had a thread about; pulled up all I mean ALL the landscaping paper under the oaks I could get my hands on.
And the ground under that dam landscaping paper was like a desert, dry as a bone.

They had them, I should have

But it was a difference between spending $14 for both of these or $80 for both of the bigger ones
