The (Leyland Cypress) is a very fast growing, dense, evergreen hedge. It has dark green, small, dense foliage and makes a good dense hedge so long as it is regularly trimmed to keep it under control. It has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
Cultivation Methods: If the conifer produces more than one leader, to maintain the general conical habit remove all but one leader. To restrict the height of the plant, the leader can be cut back.

Pot Size Guide
9cm – These tend to be used for bedding plants and young shrubs. Economical option, great for mass planting and groundcover.
1L – Used for similar small, young plants as 9cm pots, but with twice the volume. Still an economical choice.
2-4L – Used for climbers, young shrubs, and mature perennials. More vigorous and established roots than 9cm/1L pots. Quick and easy to settle in and the plant is large enough to have a visual impact. 4L are same diameter as 3L but deeper for plants that put roots down, such as roses.
5-7L – Used for semi-mature medium shrubs and small fruit trees. Produces more flowers in first year after planting and has an immediate visual impact.
10-15L – Mostly used for small trees, standards, ornamentals and 'specimen' shrubs. They have larger, healthy root systems for first year impact. Heights of plants start to differ, which can have an impact on price. Normally potted up from 3-7L pot.
18-25L – Used for semi-mature trees for instant impact. Well-established above/below ground; saving years of growing. Comparable to root balled plants.
