Green Leylandii – Cupressocyparis leylandii (also known as Leyland Cypress) 250-300cm (8-10ft)
Minimum order of 5 plants
Our Leylandi are trimmed to height, so are nice bushy plants, they’re ideal for an instant hedge or barrier, fence or wind break, ideal for reducing noise and screening out ugly eyesores.
They like sun or partial shade and well drained soil, they can grow 75-90cm per annum, so clipping 2 or 3 times a year is recommended to keep to a maintainable height to form dense formal hedge.
They should not be left to get out of hand, as if you cut them to aggressively they will not grow from old wood.These are potted plants, so are available all year.
