Customer Questions & Answers

Can i plant abelias so that they will eventually form a privacy hedge?

How far apart should they be planted? Any special pruning routines to follow in the first few years to encourage them to shape themselves towards a hedge?
Asked by: Need1hedge
This plant is not an ideal planting for a privacy hedge due to the fact that they will only mature to 36 inches tall. If you would like a low hedge I would plant them every 1 1/2 ft to 2ft apart,

How much watering is needed?

I have lemon zest plants in large planters and sometimes entire branches start dying and shedding. Plants get adequate sun, so I don't know what the problem is?
Asked by: dottie37
There could be many reasons why your plant has branches shedding, getting leggy, or dying and without seeing the plant it would be hard to diagnose. What I can recommend is trimming your plant back, and removing any dead limbs, apply a well balanced fertilizer(10-10-10), and then try go get on a regular watering scheduled giving your plants a good soak plants 1-3 days. (If your plants are in direct intense sunlight I would water every 1-2 days). Good Luck!
