Taxus Baccata - English Yew - Large circa 100-120cm tall bushy plants
Availability: In stock
English Yew is an excellent choice for informal hedging, screens or even used in topiary. It has dark-green, needle like foliage with a broadly conical, upright growing habit. Can grow extremely large and this Yew is one of the longest lived trees in Europe. If planted correctly, Yew can be sure to last for many, many years to come. A slow growing, evergreen conifer whose foliage provides an excellent backdrop to a herbaceous perennial or shrub border. Easy to grow and care for, it will thrive in full sun or shade and a wide range of soil types and conditions. Just be sure to keep it moist whilst it established and do not let it become too waterlogged.
Plant approx 45cms apart if you are planning to create and grow a hedge. These conifers can reach up to 20m high if left unpruned, however it is very easily maintained by trimming and renovating in Summer or early Autumn.
Strong, bushy plants supplied in approx. 6-7 litre containers at heights up to around 100-120cms tall.
Please note these are high quality pot grown plants, superior in our opinion to bare rooted or rootballed yew, often used for establishing new hedges, but inevitably coming with problems with establishment due to having had the roots cut.
