We were thinking of having a couple of these in pots - would this work?

Hi, Chris,
Cupressus sempervirens 'Totem Pole' grows quite quickly and gets to be at least 10m tall at maturity. I don't think it is the best choice for a container. There is a cultivar called 'Tiny Tower' and another called 'Skinny Princess' (a healthier plant than 'Tiny Tower), both of white are much smaller and better suited for container growing but I am not sure how widely it is available in the UK.
Alternatively, you could try something like Juniperus scopulorum 'Blue Arrow' which reaches about 2.5m or, even smaller is something like Juniperus communis 'Compressa'.
All the best,
Kathy C
