Growing cedar trees.

  • Deodar cedar trees, which can be propagated from seed, need plenty of space, a sunny spot, and prefers slightly acidic well-drained soil.
  • The tree needs all that space because of its beautiful weeping branches, which will grow and spread. Avoid planting the tree in areas that get a lot of wind.
  • Plant a deodar cedar sapling in the early spring months, right after the ground has thawed, or in the fall once the plant has gone dormant in preparation for winter.
  • If you plant the tree in the fall, it won't need as much sun or water as it would in the spring.
  • When planting, dig a hole that's at least three times as wide as the tree's root ball.
  • Add 25 percent compost, peat, or aged manure to the soil to help it drain, put the root ball in the hole, and return the soil and organic mix to surround the tree. Tamp the soil lightly, and water it thoroughly.
