Castlewellan Gold Leylandii Trees are fast growing evergreen conifers forming a great screen or tall hedge. Contrary to popular belief Leylandii trees can be maintained as a superb dense formal hedge If regular trimming is carried out from the start. Leylandii can be used effectively as a windbreak and will also reduce noise pollution. Leylandii are tolerant of most types of soils and conditions. Castlewellan Gold Leylandii tend to put more energy into bushing out at an early age than the green leylandii and because of this they are often deemed slower growing. Although Green leylandii may grow slightly faster vertically, they then require time to fill out once they have reached the desired height. So, In terms of achieving a solid hedge at 6 foot high, there would not be much to choose between two varieties other than colour preference. An excellent choice for a fast growing Golden coloured evergreen that will create a hedge or screen relatively quickly.
All our Castlewellan Gold Leylandii Trees are container grown and will have a fully intact and undisturbed root system. They will establish quicker than root-balled plants with fewer losses as there has been no disturbance to the root system. We recommend that Leylandii Trees are not planted as bare rooted plants as in our experience bare rooted Leylandii do not survive.
