Product Description

If you’ve ever travelled around the Mediterranean, especially the south and Italy, you will have seen Italian Cypress trees, Cupressus sempervirens dotted around the hills and in formal gardens. Instantly recognisable for their tall, slender form, they’re breathtaking and wonderfully elegant.

Not to be confused with Leylandii, to which they’re related, Italian Cypress have a naturally narrow and dense growth habit, growing arrow straight. These trees are completely hardy in the UK and evergreen, so they’ll look magnificent all year round. Preferring a sunny location and well drained soil, they’re drought tolerant and easy to look after, and reasonably fast growing.

Although the branches of Cupressus sempervirens will grow vertically without training, these trees will benefit from regular clipping, in the same way as most conifers. The more they’re clipped, the tighter and denser they’ll become. This also reduces the risk of any branches falling out of shape, especially if it snows. Any branches that do bend out of shape can be pruned out or tied back into position.

Italian Cypress trees will bring a classic Mediterranean look to your garden. They’re spectacular in groups and in borders, adding height but without taking up too much growing space, and they look splendid growing in large pots on a terrace or either side of a door or gate. These graceful beauties will always draw admiring glances, and they get better with age!

Supplied as a pair of established trees, 80-100 cm (3 ft) tall in 14 cm pots, ready to plant, reaching a height of 10 m (33 ft) and width of 1.5 m (5 ft) in 20 years.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • For best shape, remove any fir cones that form, and keep supported for 2 years until established

Care Guide

  • Plant your cypress trees where they can get full sun and in well-drained soil. 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.

The plants arrived in a healthy condition and were well protected from rough handling during transit. I was a little disappointed with the actual size of the plant but then realised that considering the cost I was being a little unfair. I am very happy with these trees. I know they'll take time to grow, but hopefully, they will give me the results I require.
Product:
Great product and arrived extremely healthy. They are thriving at present. Can't wait for them to grow much taller.

Disappointed if I am honest! Ordered the trees for my wife at the end of April ready for her birthday mid May. Informed there was a delay. Followed this up with emails....no real help. Eventually they arrived, barely 15cm when the order stated 80cm. Complained and got a 5 voucher. Looks like there was a supply issue but I am really disappointed. What I received did not resemble the photograph in the magazine

waited 3 months for delivery and then something completely different and a great deal cheaper than what they charged me for!

Previously I ordered their specialist compost and was sent bags of cheap compost that could be bought in any garden center for 3 pounds! they charged 19 pounds

Avoid at all costs

Plants arrived very well packed and in excellent condition. I was asked for details of a safe place over the phone when I ordered, which doesn't happen usually and gave me a sense of freedom from waiting in for my order, which arrived promptly with a courteous courier.
Product:
They were exactly as I expected in age, size and health for the cost - so l was quite happy with my plants.

My plants arrived with 2 snapped and so tiny. No way are they the right size. Not impressed. I won?t re order from them again.
GardenBargains Comments
We were sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with the trees delivered. Our website shows both trees at maturity after several years and clear 'as supplied' photos so our customers know what to expect initially. Should the trees not resemble the 'as supplied' photos then of course we can look into this for you. So please email us via [email protected] should you wish to address this; many thanks.

Really much smaller than illustrated even allowing for age of plants
