Care & Size Guidance

Care & Size Guidance

The Metasequoia thrives in a free draining, moist soil, in a sunny to part shade position.

As a deciduous conifer, the soil under and around the tree will become slightly acidic in time, as the dropping leaves accumulate. The thick layer can be left on over winter to protect the soil.

It can be kept in containers, provided plenty of water is provided, especially during hot summers.

Expert Tip

In urban gardens, avoid using it in settings with other evergreen plants.
