Bare Root English Yew
(Taxus baccata)

Taxus baccata is a charming evergreen plant that will provide bold levels of colour in your garden, along with the major benefits of privacy, windbreak, and noise break.

Bare Root English Yew is only available to buy and plant throughout November - March, but can be pre-ordered at any time out side of the bare root season.

English Yew has a stunning appearance, as it is expresses bold foliage in Spring and small red fruits in Autumn (which the birds love to enjoy, but are harmful to humans, livestock, and other animals).

It's a true British classic with its admirable qualities, such as being low maintenance and trimmable. It's perfect as a windbreak, noise break, or privacy hedge too!

As this species variant is a bare root, English yew will need to be planted as soon as possible after arriving on your doorstep.

English Yew can be seen as an ideal boundary hedge for any garden, with its average growth rate of 30-40cm per year. Once it has reached the desired height (best when grown between 1m-5m), it's incredibly easy to maintain.

The plant will need a lot of water to establish well, but other than that, it is quite a hardy plant that can easily adapt to many soil types and can tolerate shady sites/tricky positions.

Just make sure that when you are planting the bare root, the hole space is plenty big enough for the roots.

  • Growth rate: Average (30-40cm per year)
  • Ideal height: 2.5m+ Tall
  • Soil type: Normal
  • Exposure: Exposed, inland
  • Aspect: Full sun, full shade
  • Evergreen foliage? Yes

As soon as your English Yew Bare Root plant arrives, place it straight into a bucket of water for at least 2 hours. The roots must be wet before planting, or it will not survive. Ensure you drench the planting hole before, and after planting, too. Make sure you continue to water throughout its growth.

In terms of maintenance, the English Yew plant should only be trimmed around twice a year- once in June, and then again in late September. You must prune at the right time to ensure you don't remove new shoots trying to grow.

Root Types Summary

  • Bare Root
    Bare Root

    Field grown, bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from autumn to spring. We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the season but they can be pre-ordered in summer. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options.

  • Pot Grown
    Pot Grown

    Pot grown plants can be planted year round and make a convenient option. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements.

  • Root Ball
    Root Ball

    Also field grown, root ball plants are scooped out of the ground using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks. They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly.

  • Instant Hedging
    Instant Hedging

    Grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season. Our instant hegding troughs create a dramatic, instant hedge effect.
