can Italian Cypress do well when planted in a 20 gal. moisture -air wicking planter
we have planted 9 Italian Cypres, 3\', in 20 gal. air wicking planters, type of heavy material. will their roots grow in these as well as they would if they were planted in the ground? we may have to move, hence the container planting. thanks!!! email@example.com

I can't speak to this brand of planter but a good rule of thumb is to use a container that is 2 inches larger in diameter than the nursery pot in which the tree grows. As the tree increases in size, repot it in a larger container until the tree reaches the size you desire.
Planting in the ground as long as you have the correctly planting location and soil will generally be better for the health of the tree vs a container.
