Why We Love It

'Goldcrest' is an elegant conifer with a column-like silhouette.

Its dense foliage makes it ideal for use as a hedge or screen.

The zingy yellow-green fronds provide year-round colour and a lemony scent.

How to Plant

This cypress likes moist, well-draining clay, sandy, chalky or loam soil of any pH. It prefers full sun and tolerates dry conditions.

Into the Ground

Cupressus plants thrive in a pot, provided it's in a sunny and sheltered position on your patio. Choose a planter that's about three times the size of the temporary container, with good drainage holes. You'll also need a spade, pieces of broken pot and some ericaceous compost.

  1. Soak the plant's roots in its temporary container.
  2. Prepare the new pot by adding the pieces of broken pot and a shallow layer of ericaceous compost to its base.
  3. Pop in the plant and fill the pot with more of the compost.
  4. Water the plant thoroughly.
Into a Pot

Find your Cupressus a nice, sheltered place in the sun. You'll need a spade, a fork and some ericaceous compost.

  1. Soak the plant's roots in its temporary container.
  2. Rake over the soil, mixing in the ericaceous compost.
  3. Dig a hole that's twice the size of the rootball.
  4. Put the plant in the hole and backfill it with the soil and compost mix.
  5. Water your 'Totem' well.
