With a dense evergreen crown, yew hedge plants create excellent boundaries. They produce dark green-black needle-like foliage, red-brown bark and red berry-like fruit with toxic seeds. Yew is easy to clip and train for formal hedges and topiary schemes.
Yew hedge plants can grow up to a foot (30cm) a year. Need tall yew plants instantly? Ours range from 1m 25cm (4 feet) to above 2m 25 (over 7 feet tall). They tolerate urban sites, wind, root competition and even dense shade. They are not suitable for very acid soils, very sunny dry sites, or soggy or waterlogged soils.
Our root balled plants are available November to mid March. This is the perfect time to plant yew, as they are dormant and can be transplanted in their new position without affecting their growth. Find out more in our plant your bare-root and rootball hedging blog.
