Cedar trees have been popular in the UK since the 1740's, when they became the number one choice for the affluent in the UK. Favoured for their pyramidal shape and majestic appearance, they were planted around almost every stately home or mansion. Nowadays you can see them in much more modestly sized gardens and for a less formal appearance, consider one of the weeping varieties such as Cedrus libani 'Blue Fountain'.

Although there are merely five true members of the Cedar family, there are many known cultivars found all over the world, often in mountainous regions. Cedar trees are therefore generally very hardy plants. They tend to be resistant to disease and will grow in many positions as well as a range of different soil types. Their optimum position however is one of full sun or partial shade, and they prefer a soil that is moist yet well-drained.
