Planting instructions

Since the Feelin’ Sunny® Deodar Cedar Patio Tree is a small plant, it is common to grow it in a container. If you choose this approach, ensure that you select a container that is large enough to accommodate this plant’s root system while also allowing for good drainage. Alternatively, if you choose to plant your Feelin’ Sunny® Deodar Cedar Patio Tree in the ground, plant it the same way you would for any other plant. Dig a hole that is as deep as the root ball is tall and about twice as wide.

Watering and nutrients

Part of the reason why the Feelin’ Sunny® Deodar Cedar Patio Tree is so easy to care for is that this plant is drought tolerant after establishment. Following the first year of growth, you will need to water this plant only during times of prolonged drought or exceptionally high temperatures. The fertilization needs are also low for this plant. Often, your Feelin’ Sunny® Deodar Cedar Patio Tree will remain healthy without regular feedings. If you do wish to support this plant’s growth by feeding it, apply a balanced fertilizer every other spring.

Pollination

As a coniferous plant, the Feelin’ Sunny® Deodar Cedar Patio Tree relies on a set of male and female cones to conduct pollination. Both the male and female cones will appear on a single plant, which makes self-pollination possible. The pollination process occurs when the male cones open to release their pollen into the air. The pollen then travels to the female cones. Once the pollen arrives on the female cones, they will develop seeds that eventually drop to the ground to create a new Feelin’ Sunny® Deodar Cedar Patio Tree.

Pruning

Another convenient aspect of growing the Feelin’ Sunny® Deodar Cedar Patio Tree is that this plant needs very little pruning if any at all. When you allow your Feelin’ Sunny® Deodar cedar patio tree to grow naturally, you’ll find that it takes on a pleasing weeping form. However, occasional pruning can benefit the health of this plant. Mainly, you’ll want to use your pruning to remove any branch that is dead, damaged or diseased, but pruning beyond that is not required.

Pests, diseases, and animals

Amazingly, the Feelin’ Sunny® Deodar Cedar Patio Tree also has a fantastic ability to prevent pest infestations. The main reason for this fantastic pest resistance is that this plant secretes a natural oil that carries a distinct scent. That scent typically deters most common garden pests. One of the only pests that can harm this plant is a type of aphid that is specifically attracted to cedars and other conifers. Along with being well-equipped to ward off pest problems, the Feelin’ Sunny® Deodar Cedar Patio Tree is often disease-resistant as well.

Achieving maximum results

The foliage of the Feelin’ Sunny® Deodar Cedar Patio Tree provides most of this plant’s ornamental appeal. As such, it is often best to pair this plant with other species that will help emphasize those bright green needles. Planting plants with darker foliage nearby can really help the Feelin’ Sunny® Deodar Cedar Patio Tree stand out in sharp contrast to the rest of your garden. The growth habit of this plant also allows it to act as an effective ground cover if you plant it in the ground and allow it to spread horizontally.
