Transplanting cedars

Right after the first freeze is the ideal time to transplant cedars. Even though the native cedars are tough and obviously well-adapted, they do have a minor flaw at transplanting time. They need more water than you would guess. Don't over-water but make sure the trees are thoroughly soaked after planting with the natural planting techniques and add a light covering of whole ground cornmeal to the surface of the backfill before applying the topdressing mulch.
