Question From: Montville, Connecticut, United States
Q: My arborvitaes are 30+ and never had a deer munch on them but my friend had some planted 2 yrs ago and the deer got them good this year, I suggested Miracid by Miracle Grow ?????? I used it on a large hemlock that was on its way out 20+ yrs ago and it's still living..
If the deer chewed them back so most of the green has been removed, chances are they will not survive. That said, some shrubs make remarkable recoveries. I would not use Miracid. A better choice would be Holly Tone. Be sure the shrub is watered regularly. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
