Cupressus macrocarpa 'Goldcrest'

Was packaged with much larger bamboo plants so was a little misshapen but seems to have survived.

Unfortunately the product was of poor quality and not suitable as a specimen tree because of 2 distinct kinks in the main stem giving it an odd,unsymmetrical appearance. Consigned to the compost heap, I'm afraid.

I ordered 6 plants in 2 litre pots which should have been between 40-60cms, sadly only on plant was 40cm with the rest between 30cm and 35cm. I am very disappointed as this is not what I ordered and this size plant I could have bought from Garden Express at £9.99 for 3!!

Only problem was they were packed in a box that was not tall enough and the tops of a number of the trees were broken as they were bent over.
