Q.My Lemon Cypress Is Turning Brown

Zone 11427, Zone 7 | Anonymous added on January 6, 2022 | Answered

Hello, I bought three lemon cypresses just before Christmas and the stems are turning brown. The leaves themselves are still green at the moment. Please see the attachment as an example. I have tried to water them at least once or twice a week as I was told that they like a lot of water. On one occasion they may have dried out too much. Can they be saved? Thank you for your assistance.
