slow growing redwoods

12 years ago

We planted some small redwood trees about 2 years ago. 2 are the sierra gigantus and the others are coastal redwoods.

These are trees that thrive in this area.

The problem is that they have not grown more than about 6 inches is 2 years!

We have heavy clay soil and don't really do much watering since they grow in the area with no outside help.We usually get quite a bit of rain (25 inches or so)Not so much this year, though.

When we planted, we had a neighbor bring his backhoe in and dig fairly large holes (about 3x3)for the 1 gallon trees.

Is there something we can feed the trees? Any other ideas? Thanks Nancy
