Feed and water Plum Yew plants regularly after planting. Once established they will require little maintenance if grown as a free standing specimen tree. When grown as a hedge, Cephalotaxus should be pruned in early summer. Plants will tolerate hard pruning well.
Grow Plum Yew trees in fertile, well drained soil in partial shade. Cephalotaxus requires a cool, moist position with shelter from cold, drying winds.
