Conifers 100cm 2 for £8 B&M

15
Found 11th Mar 2015
Bought 6 of these yesterday, they're 2 for £8, so work out at £4 each! they say 100cm, however the majority are taller, the smallest are 100, the ones I bought are around 120cm! They're beautiful, healthy, well established trees, and having bought these many times over the years, I can say they are an excellent price. I will upload a picture of my receipt with the discount and price on, however I wrote on it, so apologies for this.

Hmmm, I have no clue how to post a photo in comments, so am unable to upload the one of my receipt, if anyone knows how to could you they let me know please, thank you.

I wonder if they are Leylandi, if so be careful where you plant them as over the years we bought loads and some grew to 40ft !!!
Also some councils will take enforcement action if you plant more than a few together to make a screen.......... the act was bought in in 2003, by which time I had removed most of ours.........saying that they are lovely and I've given you heat for the memories

LOL! I understand, I have Leylandii at the front on the right side, tops, if you chop the tops off when its reached the height you desire they should stop growing, am putting these on the left side, between one of the front lawns & the back, and at the rear of my back lawn (lots of gardens) we have western red cedars, which grow fast too, but again, chop the tops, the growing stops, to be honest, I think this goes for most conifers, but I'm no expert, . Anyway, I got the name and a bit of info for reference.

Chamaecyparis Plant

Chamaecyparis, common names cypress or false cypress, is a genus of conifers in the cypress family Cupressaceae, native to eastern Asia and to the western and eastern margins of the United States.

Btw, our council don't have any rules with the exception of bindweed, and let's be honest, the birds love them lol!

Christ on a bike! Who in Gods name lets any tree get that out of control in such a tiny space!

Wanna get some of these.. Hope my local have them..

How long do these to get 2 meters, I don't know much about gardening but I would like to get some for my fence screening, thinking if these plants are good or to have a proper fence, thanks for suggestions

A proper fence would be better,would take 3 or 4 years to get to 2m all depending on soil and growing conditions

I planted mine 18 inches apart for a good screen fence

I've been out and bought more, and you're right, they make a beautiful private screen/fence I already have them at the front, and you can't see a thing private, just the way I like it.

Btw, I had a quick look on ebay, and for this size/maturity, you're hard pressed to get them for less than an average of around £6-8 per tree!

I thought that, but the ones I have at the front were over 2 metres after only being in a little over 3 summers, so around 2 1/2ys, I've chopped the tops now once they got to 3mts, also, unlike a lot of other conifers, these are lovely and thick from the word go and the foilage is almost down to the bottom of the trunk, I have, western red cedars between one of my front gardens and the left side of the back, they have a longer bare trunk, and are more feathery, so not as good for complete block out screen.

Not only that, they're better for the environment and wildlife than a fence, the ones to the side of my house is usually loaded with birds and nests every year.

I put my other in one spring, they had that summer, the summer after, and on the third summer, so a little over 2yrs, they were around 2metres.

Very fast growing, so make sure you chop the tops once they're at the height you want, or they continue to grow rapidly, and I'm talking 40metres+ lol!

Anyone found any of these in Lancashire stores please?
