    I tried some arborvitae plant food spikes and a little extra watering. That helped mine. But now I have a new problem. There's a "porthole" on one of my bushes that the neighbor's kids made by breaking off branches so they could "see me better" when I was working in the yard one day and my back was turned. Is there any way to encourage new growth in the area? The hole is about halfway up about face height.

    Welcome SuzieQ.
    It would help to know what is growing there to make your hedge ? Conifer, hawthorn, holly etc

    This post was moved to its own thread (it had revived an old one), but it was posted under an arborvitae thread (Susie also mentions it re: fertilizer spikes)

    Sorry, I was following the arborvitae thread. I was talking about my arborvitae trees. They're about 9 feet tall. I don't think there's any hope for encouraging new branches in the "porthole" but I thought I'd ask in case someone has a spiffy idea.
