Q.problem with golden leylandii

Zone Glasgow | ShelbreezeTW added on May 15, 2019 | Answered

I planted 10 golden leylandii in my garden around 2 and a half months ago. I am a beginner gardener and this was the first time I have ever planted anything but they don’t seem to have grown at all. I simply used a trowel and dug 10 holes out of the soil which were slightly bigger than the soil attached ( I purchased them from a gardening nursery on Amazon) and sprinkled some Vitex Growmore pellets in the holes, sat the plants in and watered but nothing is happening — what should I do?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
(the plants are around 18 inches high and are not in direct sunlight but they get a small share of sunlight during the day)

The yellowing is likely watering issues along with plant stress.

A consistent watering regimen is needed immediately following planting.
Daily watering for the first few weeks and then you can taper off.
Add mulch to aid in moisture control and help keep the roots cool.

Make sure your soil is well draining. These Cypress do well in most soils as long as they are not wet.
