Hereof, how do you take care of Italian cypress?
Italian Cypress prefer to grow in dry conditions. During its first growing season, water regularly to help establish a healthy and robust root system. To water, deep soak around the root ball. Install emitters about one and a half feet from the trunk.
Also Know, what is the best fertilizer for Italian cypress trees? Fertilize the Italian cypress with a 5-10-10 nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium slow-release fertilizer at a rate of 3 pounds per 100 square feet. Divide 3 by 100 to determine how many pounds of fertilizer to spread per 1 square foot. Multiply the result by the Italian cypress' square footage.
Correspondingly, how often should you water Italian cypress trees?
Your Italian cypresses have a moderate water need so be sure you water them deeply twice a week during the hottest summer month and taper off to once a week during the fall, winter and spring. The drooping branches can indicate a need for water. Adjust your watering schedule and I think you'll see an improvement.
What kills Italian cypress?
Cypress canker is a fungus that infects the tree bark and progressively kills tissue, turning the leaves brown and killing them. Cracks in the bark where a canker developed reveal the area where the fungus invaded the tree. Remove infected branches when the tree has only minimal damage.
