Taxus baccata Hedge Plant Description

Taxus baccata or English Yew is a classic British conifer hedge plant. Yew creates an attractive, native screen that looks striking when trimmed into formal shapes or organic curves. The dark foliage of a Taxus baccata plant is scattered with fleshy red fruits in the autumn, which prove popular with a variety of wildlife. Yew work equally as well planted for aesthetic purposes in a garden, or used for landscape hedging, due to the traditional appearance and tough nature of these hedge plants.

Popular Uses for Taxus baccata

If you’re looking to create a perfectly neat, formal hedging, as well as sweeping curves and unusual shapes, for example, cloud pruning, Yew is ideal and will enable you to achieve your perfect landscape design. Also, Yew is perfect if you’re limited to sunlight, as this hedge plant is great for shades sites and a fantastic option when faced with awkward positions. Taxus baccata is tolerant of any soil type except for extremely wet conditions. Not only does Yew hedging make an effective privacy screen, but it also acts as a barrier for noise and wind, so ideal for urban areas. Aside from its extraordinary features, English Yew provides a striking, dark-green backdrop for colourful plants and shrubs in the garden.

Combine Yew Hedge Plants With

Yew hedging looks brilliant when planted alone; however, plants such as Viburnum or Rose can provide a colourful, visual texture when interplanted with Yew, and can soften the sometimes harsh shape. 

Growth rate of English Yew (Taxus baccata)

Taxus baccata hedging is renowned for being slow growing; however, it does maintain an average growth rate of 20-40cm a year, reaching a good height at 2m-4m.

Care and Pruning Advice for Yew (Taxus baccata) Hedging 

English Yew hedge plants require plenty of water in the first few years while establishing; however, they cannot tolerate wet feet. Yew hedging is low maintenance with no regular pruning necessary, although it does take well to trimming when required. Please take a look at our Hedging Care Advice page for further information.

Common Yew Hedge Problems

All the hedging and plants we supply at best4hedging are fresh and healthy, and well looked after our nurseries. However, being a living specimen means that sometimes problems can occur. Below is a list of common issues that can affect Yew.

Phytophthora – A large genus of microscopic pathogens, often described as a fungus, and although they resemble fungi, they are distinctly separate. A disease associated with heavy and waterlogged soils, Phytophthora will attack and kill the roots of Taxus.

Symptoms – Above ground, the foliage will turn a dark matt green or brown. These are symptoms indicative of poor water uptake, as the roots are progressively destroyed, and could be mistaken for drought or honey fungus. Below ground, smaller roots will have rotted away and more extensive roots will appear blackened and will be soft and easily broken. As this is a microscopic pathogen, there will be no visible signs of its presence.

Natural Control – Improve soil drainage with grit or land drains. Remove and destroy all infected plants and replace topsoil in the immediate vicinity if practical to do so – plant with less susceptible species, (see Appendix II). There is no effective chemical control for Phytophthora in the soil.

Vine Weevil (larvae) (Otiorhynchus sulcatus) - Vine weevil is a beetle that attacks a wide range of plants, but it is the larvae that causes the most damage over autumn and winter when they feed on the plant roots.

Symptoms –The larvae are around 5-10 mm long, creamy white colour with tan-brown heads, they live in the soil and eat the fleshy young roots in autumn and winter. This can result in wilting and death of the plant.

Natural Control – To control the larvae use the microscopic nematode Steinernema kraussei which is available from garden centres. This tiny creature invades the body of the grub and kills it. For best results, water into the soil in August or September when the soil temperature is still warm enough for the nematode to be effective (5-20ºC) and before the vine weevil grubs have grown large enough to cause severe damage.

Chemical Control – There are no chemical control methods available for application to the soil around plants, though a product containing acetamiprid is available for pot grown plants.

Recommended Planting Density for Yew (Taxus baccata)

For specific information on the planting density of Yew hedging, please see the product table below. In the 'No. Per Metre' column, you will find our recommended plant density for individual plant species and root type. You can find out more information about calculating planting density here.

Yew hedge plants are sold as; root ball hedging which is available to plant between autumn (usually October) and spring; bare roots which can be planted from November through to late April/early May (depending on the season) and pot grown or cell grown plants, which are available to buy year-round.

Most of our Taxus baccata plants are grown in Britain by hedging professionals with vast amounts of horticultural know-how. Although, now and again, it is necessary to source Yew from specialist nurseries abroad, where we make sure that the quality is of the very highest standards. At best4hedging, we continuously strive to deliver the freshest plants of the utmost quality while maintaining competitive prices, to ensure you can buy Yew hedge plants with confidence from our nursery in Lancashire.

Really good quality plants, in good condition. I ordered over 440 in total and they were all good, not even any damage in transit for all of them (about 100 per pallet).

The plants, arrived well packed and in superb condition, during very hot weather, so we watered them upon opening. My partner, my father and I were very impressed by the quality, vitality and health of the plants. We've planted them in accordance with advice received from B4H. I hope that they will flourish - suffice to say between B4Hs excellent work and our own, I'm looking forward to trouble free mature plants. These plants had obviously received a lot of love and care at B4H.

We can also deliver on a specified date to suit you. Please indicate the date you would like to receive delivery in the notes section of the checkout (or place your order by phone) and we’ll do our utmost to meet that date.

Occasional hiccups can occur (such as broken down vehicles) and although we are very experienced in logistics we cannot be held liable for costs incurred or inconvenience due to late deliveries - see terms and conditions for more information.

You will receive an email or telephone call confirming the dispatch of your order 24/48 hours before it arrives with you.

Exceptions to our quick turnaround timescale

Pre-orders - if you have placed an order that includes products on pre-order, then they will be dispatched to you as soon as they are available. If your order includes pre-order bare roots or root balls you will be notified once they are being dispatched (root balls from mid to late October and bare roots from early to mid-November).

Root balls - lifting root balls involves the use of complex, heavy machinery, this lifting is carried out twice a week in the root ball season so we do still have a prompt turnaround timescale but if your order has just missed one lifting, it will be a few days before we lift again. We are always happy to confirm when we can deliver to you before you order. The benefit of this method of supplying root balls is that they are always fresh and therefore have a higher success rate than root balls that are stored out of the soil.

Weather conditions can affect dispatch - bare root and root ball plants are not lifted if the ground is too cold (it damages the roots) and the delivery of all plants can be affected if the water supply is frozen (because we water all plants before packing). Extremely hot weather can also be challenging and occasionally we hold backorders for species that are particularly vulnerable. We ask our customers to be mindful of bank holidays when couriers are not active.

We'd like to stress that although there are exceptions, the vast majority of our orders are dispatched extremely quickly and we are proud of our logistics developed over many years of delivering plants to tens of thousands of customers.

Returns

We inspect plants carefully before dispatch but accept that very occasionally things may go wrong. 
You can return your plants (within 14 days) for a refund or replacement (we’ll help with the process of returning). If your plants arrived damaged then returns are free of charge. However, we ask that you inform us as soon as possible. If you’d like to return your plants because of a change of plan or if we do not agree that the plants are significantly damaged (the loss of a few leaves in transit or a loose pot on arrival, for example, wouldn't be harmful to the plants), then we may ask you to pay the full or partial return costs if you still wanted to return them. We’re very reasonable and always aim for complete satisfaction as demonstrated by our amazing Feefo customer reviews which can be viewed here.

Should you wish to return any products that you have over-bought, no longer require or purchased in error you will incur both a return cost (different charges for pallets and Boxes) and the original cost of delivery incurred by Best4hedging. Please contact the Service team for charges and/or to organise a return. Plants will be subject to a quality control check from our Nursery upon return before any refund is authorised and processed.

Please note that in the case of damaged plants, if you have not notified us of a problem within 14 days of delivery, we consider you to have accepted the plants and Best4Hedging has no further liability for them should they fail.
