How to Grow Thuja Occidentalis From Cuttings

Thuja Occidentalis is a popular evergreen tree that can be grown from cuttings. It is a hardy plant that does well in most climates. In this blog post, we will discuss the best way to propagate Thuja Occidentalis from cuttings.

Thuja Occidentalis can be propagated from softwood or hardwood cuttings. The best time to take cuttings is in early summer when the new growth is just beginning to harden off. Hardwood cuttings should be taken from mature wood that is at least one year old. Softwood cuttings should be taken from new growth that is still soft and flexible.

To take a cutting, use a sharp knife or pruning shears to make a clean cut just below a node. The node is the area where the leaves are attached to the stem. Cuttings should be about four inches long. Make sure to remove any leaves from the bottom half of the cutting.

Once you have taken your cuttings, it is time to plant them. Fill a planting container with moistened potting mix. Stick the cuttings into the potting mix so that the bottom node is buried. Water the cuttings well and place them in a warm, sunny location.

Cuttings should root within four to six weeks. Once they have rooted, you can transplant them into individual pots or into your garden. Thuja Occidentalis is a fast-growing plant, so be sure to give it plenty of room to grow.
