dying golden hinoki cypress
I bought a golden hinoki cypress planted it a spot that was too shady, moved it in the fall. Now most of it is brown, I have added compost is there anything else i can do?

Although Hinoki Falsecypress (Chamaecyparis obtusa) transplants from a container into the garden pretty easily, it doesn't respond well to transplanting after that. Mulching with compost, as you've done, is a wonderful way to ease the transplant shock on the root system. Prune off the brown parts and shelter your cypress from wind that may dry and stress the plant. Water deeply when the soil is dry a couple of inches below the surface.
