Hardiness Rating : H4
Our hardiness ratings are based on the new Royal Horticultural Society's "Hardiness Rating" list.
Temperature ranges (°C)
H1a > 15° Heated Greenhouse (Tropical) - Needs to be kept under glass all year round. H1b 10° to 15° Heated Greenhouse (Subtropical) - Can be gown outside in hotter, sunny, sheltered locations in summer. Performs better under glass. H1c 5° to 10° Heated Greenhouse (Warm) - Can be grown outside in summer in most of UK when day-time temperatures are high enough to promote growth. E.g. Bedding plants, tomatoes, cucumbers. H2 1° to 5° Tender (Cool but frost-free greenhouse) – Tolerant of low temperatures but won't survive being frozen. Requires glasshouse conditions unless in frost-free inner-city areas. E.g. Most succulents, subtropical plants, annual bedding plants, spring-sown vegetables. H3 1° to -5° Half Hardy (Unheated greenhouse or mild winter) – Hardy in coastal and mild parts of the UK except in severe winters and sudden, early frosts. May be hardy elsewhere in sheltered positions with a good micro-climate. Pot grown plants may be damaged or killed in cold winters with no snow cover. E.g. Mediterranean-climate plants, spring-sown vegetables with later harvests. H4 -10° to -5° Hardy (Average winter) – Hardy throughout most of the UK except at altitude, in inland valleys, and central-northerly locations. In cold gardens in harsh winters, may suffer foliage damage or stem dieback. Some normally hardy plants may not survive particularly wet winters in heavy, well-drained soils. Potted plants are vulnerable to harsh winters, particularly bulbs and evergreens. E.g. Many herbaceous and woody plants, winter brassicas, leeks. H5 -15° to -10° Hardy (Cold winter) – Hardy in most places even in sever winters. May suffer damage in exposed, northerly locations. Evergreens may suffer from foliage damage. Potted plants are at increased risk. E.g.g Many herbaceous and woody plants, some brassicas, leeks. H6 -20° to -15° Hardy (Very cold winter) – Hardy in all of UK and northern Europe. Many potted plants may need protection to avoid damage. E.g. Herbaceous and woody plants from continental climates. H7 < -20° Very Hardy – Hardy in the most severe European continental climates including exposed upland locations. E.g. Herbaceous and woody plants from continental climates.
- Habit : Columnar / Upright
- Soil Type : Chalk, Clay, Loam, Sand
- Amount of Sunlight : Full Sun, Partial Shade
- Other Features : Very fast growing
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.
