What Is Supplied
Plant Info

Treat yourself to a pair of these gorgeous Italian Cypress trees, and add a touch of Mediterranean class to your garden. 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 stunning framing a door or gateway, or in a terracotta pot.

Not to be confused with vigorous Leylandii, these slender, manageable beauties are slow growing and wont 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! For best results, remove the cones that appear, as these can pull the branches apart, losing shape. They can reach 10M in 20 years or so, yet remain very upright and narrow at 1-1.5M.

Note - image of plants in courtyard are about 10 years old - plants supplied are thinner when immature, as per other images shown

+ Service rating : Fine- delivery was pretty prompt
Product : I ordered 2 x 2trees. Three came in very good condition but on one, the tip shoot was broken - I'll see how it goes, but this is a key issue for these slender trees
-- Service rating : The advert was misleading and in my opinion infringed the advertising stds code and I worked in the advertising business in a senior job prior to my retirement. The ad would also infringe trading standards requirements.
Product : The trees were not 1.4 metres high and the supplier ignored my complaint claiming the measurement should include the pot. Even with the pot included they were still only 1.2 metres . Wont be buying anything else from them,

++ Service rating : Prompt and efficient service via internet. Prompt delivery, good product well packed for transit.
Product : Exactly as described in the promotional sales literature.
++ Service rating : I was wary of buying plants from mail-order as 15 years ago I bought roses from a company and they sent the wrong rose twice! I ordered 2 cypress trees from your Radio Times page and was impressed by their condition and the professionalism of the carrier. Then I ordered a tulip tree - same bright carrier - but bit taken aback that tree was bent double in its box. It perked up once planted and so I ordered a Judas tree which came - same efficient carrier - the next day.
Product : They enhance my garden and are a perfect gift from my Italian family in Rome.

Product : Very happy with the product and it's speedy delivery.
+ I have had to phone several times as the plants did not arrive. I would never use this firm again as the plants are in a very poor condition. They are the worst I have ever seen from a garden centre. I am still waiting for replacement plants.

- Service rating : Easy to use, good prices
Product : You garden tried to rectify our problem and they did very well . But I am not 100 percent happy with my trees.
YouGarden Comments
I am glad that our service was to your satisfaction. As discussed, if your trees don't pick up, please let us know.

Head of Customer Service
+ Service rating : Very helpful and responsive.
Product : Whilst the two tress bought were very good they were actually slightly larger than the box supplied in resulting in the tops being bent over. Hopefully this will resolve itself.
+ Service rating : First order with YouGarden, very impressed. One of my pair of trees was damaged and a replacement was made immediately.
Product : I have only put good as the trees arrived, one damaged but was replaced immediately and time will tell if they survive into "adulthood". Happy so far.

YouGarden Comments
Many thanks for ordering with us - we're glad to hear the Penstemons are looking healthy.

We do apologise for the slight delay in transit and any inconvenience caused. For future reference, your dispatch confirmation email contains a tracking link, which can be used to accurately monitor the delivery process.

- Service rating : Delivery took longer than promised in the emails warning of shipping so the trees were in transit longer than anticipated by the supplier and they looked it when I opened the package. The instructions to leave the parcel at the rear of the building if out were not followed despite being printed on the package! Instead they were left with a neighbour.
Product : The pair of trees were not well matched by height or volume of branches. They are a little smaller than I anticipated. Only the small print in the advert makes it clear that the pot is included in the height measurement.
YouGarden Comments
Thank you for your comments. We do apologise for the slight delay in transit, and would be happy to assess the condition of the trees. Could you send some images to

It's disappointing to hear your delivery instruction wasn't acknowledged, despite our efforts to display it on the package. I have raised this issue with the courier.

- Service rating : The trees arrived in a tall cardboard box which had opened at the top but was sellotaped across the opening to stop it gaping.
Product : I sent a comment as soon as I received the trees but had no response. The trees are blue grey not deep rich green as in the photo in the Radio Times. They are fairly sparse with a couple of branches pressed sideways from the trunk but may fill out with time. Disappointed.
YouGarden Comments
We're so sorry that your order was received damaged.

I'm afraid we can't find any sign of your email? Could you kindly try re-sending to and we can look into this for you.

-- Service rating : Trees purchased are brown and may not recover. It took 5 days for them to arrive though email said they would arrive in 3 days. Will demand replacements or money back if they continue to deteriorate. I watered and planted them on the day they arrived. Very disappointing. They look half dead.
Product : As above
YouGarden Comments

NA Service rating : No problem with You Garden, I ordered a pair of Italian cypress trees on the 8th May, they emailed me on the 11th May to say my order had been dispatched. The delivery company 'Yodel' have told me they have my trees at there holding depot saying my order should be delivered within 72 hours, to date, that's where they remain. I have rated You Garden as excellent, they dealt with my order immediately.
Product : Trees not received to date, as far as I know they are still being held at Yodels depot?
+ However the delivery service was not good because they lost the first order. The replacement did come very quickly.
+ The trees were packaged really badly and had to be repackaged by yodel. One tree was the right way up and the other upside down and bent over.
YouGarden Comments
I am sorry to hear that your order was damaged. This will have been re-packed due to damage in transit, as we send thousands of these out packaged like this with very few issues.

We packed them side by side - obviously Yodel moved the box around when re-packing. If you need either tree replacing, please let us know.

Head of Customer Service
+ Service rating : I did not receive my package initially but I am sure that had something to do with the couriers however when I rang your company where most apologetic and I received fresh plants within 48 hrs
Product : Well packaged and presented
++ Service rating : always a pleasure to deal with
Product : as shown in photo.... very pleased
NA Service rating : alas

Alas! The packaging was damaged and one of the trees had suffered the loss of about 6 inches. I therefore trimmed the second one to align.
Product : I feel optimistic re ;encouraging the right degree of foliage.
++ Service rating : Very good service and quick delivery.
Product : Trees very well packed and a good size. Thank you
+ Service rating : Good sevice
Product : One delivered broken, soon replaced. Thank you
+ Service rating : The first two trees were delivered in very poor condition: The packaging was broken and had been retaped/repacked over the broken carton with white tape and green lettering by Yodel. One tree had the top broken off and the other badly bent. These were replaced without fuss, for which I was grateful) and arrived 5 or 6 days after I was advised they had been dispatched. They were OK when they arrived and I think will thrive with TLC. I cannot understand why any firm uses Yodel whose reputation goes from bad to worse. They seem to care nothing about safe delivery - my son watched as one of their operatives threw a computer he had bought for his parents-in-law over the garden hedge, not even bothering to walk up the garden path to deliver it safely. Of course it was broken but the people who had sold it just sent another one! This is a very strange way to conduct business!
Product : This applies to the 2nd/replacement delivery. . .
YouGarden Comments
So sorry to hear that your order was delivered damaged. I am glad to hear that this was sorted promptly for you.

Whilst I can understand your reservations regarding our courier given your past experience, on the whole the service they provide to us is excellent. If not, we simply would not use them.

Head of Customer Service

YouGarden Comments
Thanks again for your order. The trees cost the you the same - P&P is payable when you order from our catalogue, whereas you bought at a higher, P&P inclusive price.

Head of Customer Service
+ Service rating : I have been a customer for a few years and spent a lot of money with this company. I am therefore confused and upset with my current order. I am unsure if I would re use this company now.
Product : The items were described as a pair of trees for £19.99 - this didn't happen and I was charged £29.00 ??? I presume wrong discount code again, although the code for the plant was correct.
YouGarden Comments
As discussed previously, you need to make sure that you are entering the offer code quoted in our adverts in order to get the advertised discounts. I have emailed you to resolve this.

So sorry about this. I understand that we've replaced again? I will follow up with our Nursery Manager, as something has clearly gone wrong here.

Product : 5*
++ Service rating : very good service. Recommended.
Product : Good shape. Thanks.
+ Service rating : Yodel delivery service very poor - said they attempted to deliver and they did not as i was in all day. Replacements took a further week to come.
Product : Trees look good but one does look slightly bluer in colour than the other.
- Service rating : I found the sales rep a bit lukewarm and not very informative.
Product : Before ordering the items, I checked the website to ascertain the size of the plants. I was very disappointed to receive one of the plants quite smaller than the other, it also came with no support cane. I was truly very disdained.
YouGarden Comments
Sorry to hear that you're disappointed with one of your trees. Please send us a photo of them side by side and we'll replace the smaller one for you.

Product : One of the tress has what appears to be the 'bark missing' possibly damaged by the green tape around the tree but it seems ok
- Service rating : Generally products good but not on this occasion.
Product : The box was left at the back door standing upright. Consequently when the box was opened the cypress trees were all bent at the top. The box should have been marked to be kept flat or the proper way up.

Are you sure these are the same, Cupressus semp.? It is common for Leylandii etc. to be as low as this price, but not these.

++ Service rating : The products I received were good (Acer) to excellent (Cypress). I received them soon after ordering and they arrived in very good condition although I was not too impressed with the packaging.

Product : Good service
++ Service rating : when I contact yourselves I found you to be very professional and understanding of my requirements.
Product : Extremely pleased with the plants , just as was quoted in your literature, I will certainly continue to buy more plants from you at this standard. However the packaging could possibly do with some re-enforcing . had it not been for the canes supporting the plants the package arrived almost at an angle of 45 degrees and with only two binding straps the package was showing the contents.
+ Service rating : Good response to my complaint and quick replacement of items.
Product : The trees were in good condition.
++ Service rating : well packaged
Product : in very good condition
+ Service rating : Delivered as stated
Product : Good appearance
++ My goods arrived in less than 48 hours after telephoning in my order.I thought this was most impressive,especially as it was just before Christmas. The goods look good and were well packed.
++ The trees were far far better than we expected.
+ Service rating : For some reason this delivery was put on hold as the order contained 2 out of stock items. So I needed to chase it up as it had 2 holly trees which I wanted before Christmas for obvious reasons
Product : Plants themselves seem oK but were stupidly packed top to tail. Previous orders have been much better packed.
++ Service rating : Great service and plant quality
Product : Superb, just what I wanted!

++ Service rating : very good service
Product : Both trees in excellent condition
++ Web site needs improvement

Product : Good value.

Product : Hope the one with no soil still lives.
YouGarden Comments
Many thanks for making us aware of this - we'd hate for you to receive a tree which doesn't thrive as expected. Please let us know if your tree doesn't progress over the coming months and we'll help rectify the situation.

++ Service rating : Excellent price & fast delivery. Really pleased
Product : These were excellent specimens in terms of size & quality compared to ones shipped by your competitors eg Van Meuwen
++ Service rating : very prompt
Product : plants better than expected
+ Service rating : All was well
Product : pleased with the trees
++ Service rating : Delivered in good condition and in time frame
Product : Trees well packed and in good condition
++ Service rating : very well packed.
Product : very pleased with trees & they are going into tubs tomorrow.
++ Service rating : Good service, quick and well packed, will use again.
Product : Trees are good quality.
++ Service rating : Prompt delivery and well packaged. Excellent courier firm used.
Product : Well grown and very healthy trees. Exactly as described.
+ Service rating : The pairs of Cypress trees arrived on time and in good condition. However, the items were packed in long boxes with one pot at each end; the delivery man propped the boxes on end against my porch wall, which meant that one pot in each box was upside down, and lost some of the surrounding compost.
Product : The Cypress trees look in good condition.
- Service rating : Good service
Product : Not quite as per photo in advert
+ Service rating : A problem with my order was sorted timely, courteously and efficiently.
Product : Not sure what you can do but the method of packaging/delivery caused a problem by damaging one tree.
+ Service rating : Always had a first class service from this company
Product : Trees arrived in good condition. They were packaged in cardboard box but were in box head to toe. one item had flown around box unrestrained which caused slight damage, tree was bent over in a 'U' format which took a little time to straighten after planting. Now fully recovered.
++ Service rating : Very speedy delivery. Items delivered within three days of order. All boxed well and undamaged.
Product : Well packaged. Completely undamaged which was essential as they were cypress trees.
+ Service rating : Service & delivery on time but packaging was poor. The carton was bashed to bits, one of the trees had come out of its pot with compost all over the place. It needed immediate re-potting.
Product : We thought the trees were a bit spindley.
- Service rating : the phone service was good but the product was not good on delivery. this was because the box was open one end with tree pokeing out and the root balls half out of pots with soil out of pot.The box would have been better marked keep upright and the trees packed both the same way up instead of opposite ends. I expect the reason of packing one one way and one another is space but it does not help the product arrive in the best possible condition.
Product : As above .Packaging and bad labelling did not produce a good pair of trees.
+ Plants arrived in good order despite the carrier breaking the box and dropping soil all over our hall carpet.
+ Service rating : No problems prompt delivery
Product : As expected. Will await growth. Notice one has a few dying branches but not remember if was so on delivery. Don't remember any potting suggestions etc. Have used general purpose compost. Possibly needs more drainage.
++ Service rating : Very pleased
Product : Very pleased
