Planting & Care
Cypress are relatively easy to grow and care for, so thereâ€™s no reason why you canâ€™t create a little slice of Tuscany in your own garden. In a formal garden, plant the trees to mark entrances; they look at their best equally spaced out along a driveway, however, if you donâ€™t have the space for a row of trees, why not plant one on either side of a gate or entrance.
Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade
Soil: well-drained soil
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer
- If you really donâ€™t have the space for several trees, make one a focal point in the garden; a good idea is to place it at the end of a narrow garden within a circular bed that will draw the eye towards it as it stands out like an exclamation mark.
- Most garden centres will stock cypress trees of varying sizes and prices but, unless you want instant impact, consider buying a smaller tree as after the first year, the tree can grow at a rate of between 12-24 inches a year.
Narrow columnar form is sometimes difficult to fit into residential landscapes. Good specimen around tall buildings.
- The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
No serious insect or disease problems.
