Yew Hedging Conifers

Taxus baccata, Yew Hedge

Yew Hedging plants are a classic and have been used for centuries as defining features in the gardens of many English country homes. Common Yew is one of the most popular choices for a formal hedge and it is also well suited to topiary. Although Yew is often considered slower growing it often grows more quickly than anticipated. At 30cm on average per year, a six foot hedge can be achieved in an acceptable timeframe. The advantage of this is that once your Yew Hedge has reached its desired height it is much easier to maintain. A Yew hedge will tolerate very close clipping and also has the ability to regenerate green growth from older wood. An overgrown Yew hedge can often be restored with hard pruning in late Winter/ early Spring.
Yew will form a dense evergreen hedge with small, linear, dark green leaves. The male plants produce yellow cones in spring, which give rise to the small, red, seed bearing fruits on female plants. Yew Hedges are easy to grow and are tolerant of many different soils and conditions with the exception being waterlogged sites. Yew will make an excellent feature as a formal hedge within any contemporary or traditional setting.

    Our Minimum order for rootballed or Instant hedging plants is one pallet. The quantity of plants that fit on one pallet is shown for each variety and size. There is NO vat to add to these prices. Please contact us for a quote for delivery.
    Rootballed plants are available in bigger sizes from October through to April, weather dependent. These plants are grown in bigger sizes going up to 3 metres in height. Rootballed plants are lifted during the plants dormant period. This reduces the amount of stress imposed on the plants and increases the chances of successful re-establishment. Plants are also lifted to order to minimise the time they are stored out of the ground before replanting. Although rootball plants may seem expensive many of these plants will be between 6-15 years old and will have been root pruned and trimmed many times before they are lifted. Rootball plants tend to be bushier than pot grown plants as they have been out in the field and more exposed to the elements. They are lifted from the field using specialist machinery and the soil rootball is hessian wrapped to protect it. This protective wrapping should be left on at planting and will naturally bio degrade.
