What Is Supplied
Plant Info
For highly impactful specimen plantings in beds, borders and  patio pots, the Golden Scented Cypress is a must!

The soft, bright golden-yellow foliage will provide your garden with healthy colour all year round and (in keeping with its name) gives off a fresh, lemon scent when foliage is crushed or cut - which is said to deter biting insects from that area of your garden. In fact it is such a great all round garden plant it has been awarded the coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit!

Growing to 2-3m tall, It is naturally upright and slightly ‘teardrop’ shaped, but can be trimmed to suit your required height.  A ‘little and often’ approach to trimming of the young, soft shoots will allow you to easily keep it to the shape and size that suits you. It is very easy to manage and can be kept in post on the patio for many years, where it will happily sit at centre stage of your displays. Once it has reached the desired height and width, prune the new growth in early summer and mid-autumn each year. A hedge trimmer will leave the perfect finish.

Golden Scented Cypress will grow in virtually any soil and in any location from full sun to partial shade (although for the brightest of golden-yellow colour it is best in full sun). It is completely winter hardy throughout the entire UK and is virtually pest and disease resistant too. In the depths of winter the cooler temperatures give the trees an even deeper, richer colouration.

YouGarden Comments
We are very disappointed that you have left such poor feedback. We have gone out of our way to resolve the issue for you - over and above your rights as a consumer and indeed our extensive Lifetime Guarantee.

Despite - in the independent opinions of two of our experts - all of the issues you experienced with your order of last year being due to insufficient care of the plants in question - we sent you replacements, then additional replacements over and above what was originally agreed.

We regret that this hasn't been resolved to your satisfaction, however we believe that to expect us to send any more free items to you is entirely unreasonable.

My team have been fair and incredibly accommodating in dealing with your complaint - in the face of ever-increasing demands. You have received a large number of free items from us now and I am afraid that enough is enough.

I apologise again for any disappointment caused, however we shall not be sending any further items to you.

++ Service rating : Excellent offers and fast delivery
Product : Strong healthy trees
++ Very happy with all aspects of your service.
++ Service rating : Splendid service. All plants are boxed well and delivered promptly.
I find the £6.99 p+p a little much for each order. Always find something else I
want to order after I've finished check out so then it's ANOTHER £6.99, consequently don't order as much as I would if I could lump them all together.
Product : Looks fab, smells lovely when touched ~ I've put them by my front gate so people can brush by them! Amazing colour really brightens up my dull autumn garden.

++ Service rating : Very good website with a good variety of plants.

YouGarden Comments
Thank you for your order and your feedback!

YouGarden Ltd
++ Service rating : I gave this rating because the service is good and your service department is helpful but having to pay for the delivery of each separate item is annoying when I only have to pay for each order I place with a plant company one of whish is the one you deal with
Product : Exactly what I wanted and came in excellent condition and are growing away happily
YouGarden Comments
I have checked and you have paid one PP&I charge only for this order.

The only circumstances where you'll have to pay for each product are for large, bulky items such as bags of compost - as detailed in the product description and at our checkout.

For all other items PP&I is charged once per order only.

Thanks again for your custom.

YouGarden Ltd
