Product Description
Taxus Baccata Yew Hedging Plants 30-50cm Bare Root

Taxus baccata often called English Yew simply grow into the best formal evergreen hedge there is. This is the Rolls Royce of hedges.Fabulous trimmed into classic topiary. See our topiary frames.

English Yew is a medium to large sized truly native evergreen tree with leaves that are a very dark green.
This is what makes a yew hedge such an effective backdrop - for those of you who know the RHS gardens at Wisley two huge English yew hedges set off the magnificent main herbaceous borders there.
The leaf colour and size and ultimately its slow growth - once the growing tip is removed also combine to make Taxus Baccata an ideal plant for topiary as well as for formal hedging, since it clips beautifully.

The flowers are cream to yellow and are followed by red berries.

This is as close to a perfect hedging plant as you can get. English yew hedging is so understated and unfussy that it is equally at home as a maze at Hampton Count or enclosing a little kitchen garden.

Excellent for feeding and encouraging the birds in the winter.

Plant 3 per metre in a staggered row (in a double row 50cm apart and the rows 30cm apart). Clipping the top leader on planting to encourage bushy growth. These plants will grow in any soil, in sun or shade.

The planting season is between November and late March while the plant is in dormant growth. Dig a reasonable hole and plant with either some rose or tree compost or any organic matter (but not fresh manure, well rotted is fine) and plant with some bone meal or fish, blood and bone as this will encourage quick root growth. Do not water once planted (unless the ground is very dry), so the plant will find it's own water (make it work for it's water, creating strong root growth)

Yew once established will grow anything between 10cm-15cm per year.

Each plant is 30-50cm and bare root.
Free delivery is for all postcode areas in England and Wales with the exception of the Isle of Wight and the Isles of Scilly
