Asked by Ms April 30, 2020

Answer

Without the ability to see your plant I would say yes. Here is some information to consider when trimming a Cleyera. When the shrub needs a light trim, spring is the best time for pruning cleyera. Instead of shortening the stems, cut them all the way back to the center of the plant. Shortening a stem encourages two new side branches to grow where you made the cut. Pinching out the growth tips encourages bushiness.

Answer

This plant will survive well in USDA zone 7-10, so before planting make sure you live within the recommended zone range. Ice storms will damaging to almost all plants in this "large hedge" category, not excluding the Bigfoot. So there is a decent chance you will experience some foliage/branch damage in those conditions, but once thawed out the Bigfoot cleyeras vigorus growth habit should bounce back.

Why are all my plants dying or has died

Asked by Sandra August 10, 2019
1
Answer

There are many factors that could be causing issues that could be causing your plants to fail. Some of the most common would be too much water, not enough water, poor drainage, pH level that can not sustain this plant, too much sun, or not enough sun. Without additional information or a photo of the plant it is very hard for us to diagnosis the issue.

I live in the desert, Tucson. I need privacy for about 20 ft. Will this do well here?

Asked by snickerdoodle February 22, 2019
1
Answer

I am not very familiar with the soil conditions of AZ, but a quick search suggested that your soil type will be most likely quite poor(alkaline, low in nutrients, clay/sandy). If you would like to try growing this plant I would suggest digging quite a large hole and amending your soil with a rich garden soil that will hold moisture and nutrients that will help sustain your plants. It looks like Tucson is in USDA Zone 9, which is within the temperature range for this plant to thrive, but making sure to give the plants proper nutrients and moisture will go along way to insure your plants thrive.

They look good. They're already growing some. Just planted them a couple weeks ago. We will see how big they get. I'm waiting on a few more to come in. I have a long fence line I'm trying to add a privacy screen to. Hopefully it will fill in well.

They arrived a few days later than expected but they were in good condition. We put them in the ground and they are doing well (it’s been a few weeks). I’ll definitely buy more in this way.

I bought 50 3 gallon big foot Cleyera’s and received 46 and 1 bronze beauty. The plants were in good shape but in varied sizes. Fed Ex delivery was poor. Three separate partial deliveries and once to my neighbor’s house. Home Depot service department was great in crediting me for four plants.

The plants were so huge for the container that they had been cut back at the top to fit in the box. If these had been trees I would have been heartbroken. But as shrubs, they should recover nicely. The root balls were healthy and the packing was the best I have ever seen. Thank you.
