Why We Love It

Known as the King of Hedges, this is the English yew (Taxus baccata), an evergreen with an elegantly stylish appearance.

It's easy to look after and has year-round interest.

This one comes already pruned into a ball shape.

How to Plant

Into the Ground

  1. Give your plant a good water, so the plant is completely soaked through.
  2. Dig a hole a little deeper than pot depth and at least twice as wide.
  3. Tip the plant out of its pot, tease out a few roots.
  4. Place your shrub at the same level it was in its pot, and don’t bury any stems.
  5. Use your heel to firm the soil around the plant.

Into a Pot

  1. Cover the drainage holes in your pot using stones or pieces of broken pot.
  2. Add the compost to your container.
  3. Gently loosen the roots of your plant and place it in the container.
  4. Check that the top of the roots is level with the top of the compost, approximately 2.5cm below the edge of the container.
  5. Fill the container. Firm the compost and water well.
