We planted 90 small Golden Wilma a year ago and we have not lost any. Can someone tell us how best to feed them so they grow stronger and with brighter colours?

Hi, Keith,
You can fertilise them monthly with a slow release or liquid fertiliser during the growing season.
All the best,
Kathy C

Hi Kathy, Thanks for your reply. We have used blood and bone and growmore has always worked well for us. During the spring/summer we use miracle grow.

Our garden is basically heath land and acidic and. we wondered if we should add some lime occasionally.

Keith all conifers are acid lovers, so you don't have to add any lime, also cupressus of all sorts are fast growing, sacrificing putting down good root systems for top growth, so in windy areas this becomes a problem.
