Description:

Yew is a native British evergreen, whose wood was once used for making longbows. Young plants are bushy and, if left unclipped, they eventually grow into large trees almost as wide as they are tall. However they are rarely allowed to grow naturally, being a firm favourite for classic style hedges and topiary. The plants withstand quite hard clipping and, if overgrown, can be rejuvenated by cutting them back to the stumps. The are also quite amenable to growing conditions and will grow in any well-drained soil.

    Can’t ask for more - good healthy plants, delivered at exactly the right time as the weather started to turn cool. Bought a significant number of trees/plants from 3fp now; no issues at all. Thank you.
