Why We Love It

This small conifer has soft, needle-like foliage that grows in a pyramid shape.

Cones hang from its branches in autumn.

Planting Calendar

Plant in June, July, August, September, October, November.

Planting and Care

Plant the tree in full or partial sun and in sand, loam, chalk or clay of any pH. Keep soil moist and well-drained. 

Into the Ground

Once you've found a sunny sheltered spot, make sure there will be enough room between your 'Cryptomeria' and any other shrubs or trees, as this one likes to spread. Then, get your spade, watering can and peat-free compost ready.

  1. Dig a hole that is twice the size of the plant's rootball.
  2. Sprinkle some compost into the bottom of the hole.
  3. Place your 'Cryptomeria' and gently backfill soil.
  4. Once secure, water thoroughly.

Into a Pot

Your 'Cryptomeria' can have an eventual spread of approximately 1.5 metres, so if you're planting into a pot or container, choose one with this in mind. It'll need to be roomy enough for your shrub to grow comfortably. Once you have the right pot, gather your spade, watering can and peat-free compost.

  1. Add a mix of soil and peat-free compost to the bottom of your pot.
  2. Gently tease the roots of your 'Cryptomeria' and place it into the container.
  3. Backfill soil, firming up as you go.
  4. Once secure, give it a decent drink of water.
