Price £5.49
Pre - Order Nov 2024

The King of Hedging, English Yew. Yew hedging, also referred to by its Latin name Taxus baccata, boasts stunning dark-green, conifer foliage that is easy to maintain and trim, and has a slow growth rate. Yew is the perfect hedge plant for shaping formal displays. If you’re looking to create a dense, evergreen hedging display that can also transform into a privacy screen hedge, or be used to help reduce noise, Taxus baccata is worth considering.

  • Best Features: Evergreen foliage, year-round interest, slow growing for easy maintenance, RHS Hedging
  • Ideal For Hedges:  1m-4m high
  • Growth Rate: Slow to Average | 20-40cm a year
  • Position: Any normal soil (or dry if watered), sun to full shade, exposed inland
  • Also Consider: For species with dense foliage, similar to Taxus baccata, try Portuguese Laurel (Prunus Lusitanica)
