I found 2 thuga seedlings in my row of the shrubs last spring. This spring I transplanted them to areas near the parent plants. One died. The other, with careful watering and protection from the big feet of a groundhog, deer and our dogs, has made it. I hadn't planned on potting it for the winter. Now I'm not sure of what to do. A fir tree seedling grew in a nearby area for 3 years. I potted it this summer and have it in the window of our insulated - not heated - garage. Growing evergreen seedlings is a new experience for me. It's much harder than growing other seeds/seedlings! Perhaps success will make it more satisfying!

If your thuja seedling is big enough I'm sure it will survive this winter. Good idea with the garage!

The seedling is only about 2" tall. I'm hoping the snow on the ground will keep it insulated from sun and wind during the winter.

Good luck with that! I hope they will survive and grow well for you.
Happy New Year!
