Customer Reviews & Photos
Ordered two both died
I purchased two and followed the care instructions that were included in the packaging. They last about two weeks and died. I looked online for additional tips and instructions and couldn't find anything that I was doing that wasn't recommended. They were gorgeous when they arrived and appeared to be healthy. But they faded fast unfortunately.
I really want this plant to make it. I will continue to watch and will get back to you if it does not improve. Thank you
The lemon cypress came a little crooked in the box with a few brown branches. I have done everything the instructions have said to do but I continue to get more and more branches are turning brown. Not sure if this is standard or not'
Planting & Care
Planting Instructions: Plant your Lemon Crest Cypress in well-draining soil and place it in a spot that receives 6-8 hours of full sun each day. You do not need to amend your soil with anything as the Lemon Crest is very tolerant of most soil conditions. If planting outdoors, be sure to plant in a spot that is protected from cold, harsh winds in a hole that is big enough to cover the root ball. Water deeply immediately after planting.
Watering: Water only when the first 1-2" of soil is completely dry. The amount of watering you will need to do depends on the climate you live in. Do not overwater.
Fertilization: You can add a 20-20-20 slow release fertilizer before each spring, though it is not necessary.
Pruning: Prune lightly to maintain the shape of your Lemon Crest. Only prune during spring each year. If planting in a container, re-plant in a new container every 4 years.
