We have a cedar hegde, planted 2 years ago, which is doing well, growing taller as well as more bushy. We are getting what appears to be small rounded seed pods ?? at the tips of quite a few of the cedars, but not on all. Are these new growth,or something else? Should we do anything about them. Any and all help will be appreciated greatly. This is something new to us and I couldn't find anything about it in any of my books. Thanks so Much.

An entirely natural thing, will provide food for the birds this winter. Don't do a thing. I know a lady who writes a bird column weekly in the Ottawa paper and has done so for many years. She says that Cedar is the single most beneficial plant for birds that you can have in your garden - they provide shelter from cold and from predators, and food too.

When is the best time to cut back a cedar hedge in Montreal ? Is the fall too late ?

I would trim it back in spring, not fall. My reasoning is that you will probably get some branch tips dying back here and there over the winter. So better to trim in spring.
