Description

This English Yew is a medium-sized bushy evergreen tree with narrow, leathery, very dark green leaves. Male plants produce yellow cones in spring and female plants produce red cup-shaped non edible autumn fruits. Tolerant to dry soils and a good all round tough plant. They can be grown as hedges and are ideal for backdrops in herbaceous beds or as a general formal hedge. Unsurprisingly, Taxus baccata has been awarded a prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit. Height: 20m (66'). Spread: 10m (33').

For instant impact try one of one of our innovative trough-grown hedges! Each trough contains a 1 metre length of pre-planted hedging to create a mature looking hedge from the very moment it is planted. With well-established root systems, you’ll find that trough-grown hedges are correctly spaced, making them much easier to plant. The healthy framework of branches are nicely knitted together, and can be trimmed to the ideal height immediately after planting. Better still, you can plant them all year round, so long as adequate irrigation is provided. If planting is delayed then trough-grown hedges can be easily maintained until you are ready, without the need for ‘heeling in’.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Yew trees in any well drained, fertile soil. Taxus is versatile and will happily grow on acid or alkaline soils. It will grow thrive in almost any position from full sun to deep shade.
More Info
Feed and water regularly until yew trees are fully established. Yew may be left unpruned to form a handsome tree, or pruned in summer and early autumn to create a dense, evergreen hedge.
