Fall is the perfect time to plant these evergreens because it minimizes stress. It's not recommended to plant them in temperatures over 90 or those reaching in the hundreds.

Answer

These are cold hardy and prefer the temps in zone 9A and cooler areas of 10B. I'd check your zone to be sure and if so consistent watering would be very important.

They are awfully small. A couple of them have not survived, am interested to see if the rest make it.

How long is the guarantee for these trees when purchased online?

Answer

It's 90 days with Home Depot. You'll know in 2 months how the plant is doing. If you suspect the plant isn't doing well at this point, start videos to document. Consider making a store visit and select yourself. They'll deliver as well.

Do these ship in a planter? Or will I need to buy pots?

They come in a temporary plastic pot. You will have to replant them in the ground or a big heavy pot

If you're planting it in the ground remember that you can "adjust" for some of the leaning without tie supports. If the plant needs more, put a coned type tomato basket - -inverted-- and use the "ground prongs" to stabilize the top. I wouldn't tie anything to your young tree until after 2 years.

Can you leave these in large pots to grow if I don't want to place them in the ground?

I ordered 3 and they all came in beautiful condition and taller than expected. They were boxed extremely well and packaged so that the soil was moist. I was very, very pleased with these trees.

When delivered - in October 2016 - these were just over 12" tall. Since then, growth has been very slow. Currently just over 30" tall. Based on this we might have a row of trees such as shown above in about 20 years time.... Not as expected!

These are NOT DEER RESISTANT-the product information is incorrect. https://njaes.rutgers.edu/deer-resistant-plants/ http://blandy.virginia.edu/arboretum/deer-resistant-plants The 2 that I bought are still 6 inches tall after a year and a half. Bought & planted these in Fall 2018. Zone 7A Northern Virginia. You can barely see it in the picture, but it is there.

We ordered 8 & they came delivered in tall boxes of 2. The plants were moist and very healthy. I was very impressed with their shipping. Some day they will provide a beautiful privacy screen. For now they are an attractive addition to our landscaping at our newly constructed home. I have always admired the arborvitae as I ride along & take in the scenery. Now I am excited to have others admire mine!

I bought 5 of these evergreen trees for a privacy fence & was so pleased but because its a extremely hot/dry summer I potted them on into larger pots with good soil and put them somewhere where they can get some shade in the afternoon cos they are still young after all (the morning sun in in the upper 90`s already) but 1 week later 2 of them are turning yellow despite me watering them every evening. There`s nothing else i could do for them, so im wondering if its worth me buying replacements?
