| English Yew Hedge is the classic British conifer hedging plant, called the King of Hedges. Yew is a dense, dark evergreen with bright green spring growth and autumnal red fruits which are much sought after by birds but harmful to humans, pets and livestock. It is often thought to be very slow growing but actually normally grows by 30/40cm pa so not as slow as many people think - but once it reaches its desired height, its easy to maintain. Yew hedging needs plenty of water in the first couple of seasons but should not sit in waterlogged soil. If you are concerned that you have clay, wet soil, please improve the drainage when planting Yew. Apart from its requirement for water, its very easy to grow, shade tolerant, very hardy, and likes all soils particularly alkaline.|
Prices shown are the price per plant. Planting distances are very much a matter of choice - for bare roots, 3 plants per metre is adequate, 5 is good, 7 in a double staggered row will give a dense hedge quicker. Generally, smaller plants should be planted at higher density. Cell grown should be planted at 4 per metre in a single row or ideally 6 per metre in a staggered row. Planting densities for pot grown (which vary by pot size) and root ball (which vary by height) are shown below but again you can vary these depending on your budget and level of patience. See also our Advice section on Planting Density on the right hand side of our website.
Cell grown and pot grown plants are available all year round. Bare root plants are only available from November to late March/early April. Root Ball plants are only available from mid-October to late April
