Understanding the annual regrowth of cedar hedges

March 13th, 2024

The growth rate of cedar hedges can be affected by a number of factors. Cedar type, soil type, age and temperature can all influence the growth rate of cedar hedges. It’s important to note that some changes in growth rates are normal and shouldn’t cause concern, while others may indicate a problem with the hedge’s health. To ensure healthy growth, it’s essential to understand the factors that influence the growth rate of cedar hedges.

The typical growth rate of cedar hedges can vary according to cedar type and growing conditions. On average, however, cedar hedges can grow 1 to 2 feet per year. To maintain a healthy, attractive hedge, we recommend pruning at least once a year. A good time to trim cedar hedges is at the end of June, when the annual growth has fully emerged. This allows the hedge to recover from pruning before the onset of winter.

To maintain the healthy growth and appearance of cedar hedges, it’s important to follow a few tips. As a first step, we recommend pruning the hedge at least once a year to control growth and increase density. When pruning, it’s crucial to stay within the new growth, and to trim no more than a third or half of the new shoots. In addition, it’s important to water and fertilize the hedge regularly, protect it from the rigours of winter and watch out for any signs of disease or pests. By following these tips, you can ensure that your cedar hedges remain healthy and attractive year after year.
