Monterey cypress 'Goldcrest' hedging plants are very popular conifers due to their bright lime/yellow foliage and an upright narrow shape. It is also a great additon to a sensory garden as in the  summer, its foliage is lemon scented particularly when cut or brushed. It makes a great hedging plant due to its dense growing habit so it is ideal for privacy and windbreak.

Monterey cypress Goldcrest requires little if any pruning being a member of the conifer family. However, if you wish to limit its spread or height, then trimming can be done in late spring after the last frosts.

We'd advise not to overtrim however, as this could unduly damage the plant leaving it more easily susceptible to disease, including fungal diseases such as honey fungus. This can result in unsightly brown patches affecting the lovely yellow-green foliage for which the plant is noted.
