How to take care of Standard Cupressus goldcrest 14cm
Water regularly especially during summer, always keep moist do not allow it to completely dry out, if this happens it will kill this plant. Feed it monthly during the growing season with a general-purpose liquid fertiliser. Trim regularly to maintain the ball shape, do not trim during periods of frost and do not allow snow to rest on the plant, as it will cause damage. If you are growing this plant in a pot make sure that the pot is well protected from harsh winter frosts, you can do this by either burying the entire pot in the soil and mulching around the top with a few inches of bark or leaves, or by wrapping the pot in a sack filled with straw and placing it in a sheltered spot or you could move the pot indoors to an unheated room, it does not need much water in winter however do not allow it to dry out completely.
For best results soak the roots for approx 2 hrs before planting and water well after planting and for the next few weeks.
