Seen all over Italy, these spectacular architectural conifers will add height and year-round interest wherever you plant them. With their elegant, pencil-thin form, they’ll look simply stu ing framing a door or gateway, or in a terracotta pot. Not to be confused with vigorous Leylandii, these slender, manageable beauties are slower growing and won’t get out of hand – you can even grow them on your patio. They are of course very drought tolerant, but also completely hardy and evergreen, so they’ll thrive here in the UK and look magnificent all year round whatever the weather.

If using a container, a soil-based potting compost is ideal. Dig a planting hole larger than the root ball of the cypress tree and add organic matter into the hole. We recommend the use of mycorrhizal fungi when planting to help the roots develop. Place the tree into the hole and backfill, ensuring that the stem is at the same level as when it was in the pot. Press the soil firmly around the base of the tree’s trunk. Water thoroughly. You need to water the tree regularly for the first two growing seasons. Once established, this tree is drought tolerant. Container plants will need regular watering. After first planting, mulch with 2-3 inches of organic matter to retain moisture in the soil and prevent competition from weeds. Check for any damaged or dead growth and prune out as necessary. New growth will soon fill the gap. Trim lightly several times a year to create the densest foliage and the neatest shape.
