What To Feed Arborvitae

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..

A: 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
