Commonly Asked Questions

How far apart should I plant Bettergreen Cypress?

For a screening hedge, 1.5-2.5m apart is ideal for creating a thick screening / windbreaking hedge.


Do I need to prune Bettergreen Cypress?

Most people select Bettergreens for its mature size; however, if you wish to keep it clipped to a smaller size, a prune in late summer can keep them to a more compact size.


Can I plant Bettergreen Cypress if I have clay soil?

Yes, you can! Dig up the soil as much as possible and add a product such as Gypsum to break up the clay. If possible, Try to build up the soil so that water doesn’t well at the base of the plant.
