The Inman’s Select Redwood is very easy to grow in a consistently moist, humusy soil and full to mostly sun. It prefers a consistently moist soil so is a perfect choice for growing in those areas where the soil doesn’t want to dry out. Maintenance is minimal to none…just plant and watch it grow, quickly! Pruning isn’t necessary, however selective pruning for shaping is tolerated or to remove lower branches is fine. Avoid pruning in the spring when the tree is emerging from dormancy. Prune in late winter.
