Taxus baccata Taxus Baccata 3 Litre
Yew - 3 litres
Taxus baccata is a British native evergreen, used for centuries for hedging and formal training, ideally suited to these purposes because of its dense, dark green foliage and amenability to trimming, even into old wood. Very hardy and long-lived. Suitable for a hedge of any height from 75cm upwards! Provides a perfect background for shrubs and perennials. Capable of growing 2m in 10 years if watered and fed in spring in the early years. Poisonous to stock.
For a hedge, plant young plants 45cm apart in well-prepared soil. Keep well watered and feed with a balanced fertiliser in spring in the first 2 or 3 years after planting. Trim in June and July.
This plant has an RHS Award of Garden Merit.
