Common Yew (Taxus Baccata) 

The Common Yew or English Yew (Taxus baccata) is one of our few truly native, British trees and is ideal to have in your garden if you have nothing to do on a weekend and fancy making bows and arrows (Historically commonly Yewsed...see what we did there?...ok not funny if we have to explain it).

Quite a feature of the landscape, this is a slow-growing, evergreen tree. Attractive red-berries are produced in summer but remember that they are poisonous (If your partner offers you a Yew berry sandwich, that might be a hint your relationship is in trouble). Taxus Baccata is quite a tolerant tree of most conditions however wet conditions will certainly annoy it causing it to under perform. So Chalky, dry or clay conditions are ok for the Common Yew tree.

Suited to small-medium gardens as it will only reach a height of 6 metres after 10 years. It also well-suited to trimming and looks good for Topiary.

Common Yew is also widely used as a hedging species. Click on these links to see our other yew trees. If you require HEDGING YEW, click on this link and if you require more than one tree then discounts are offered at the YEW TREE WHOLESALE section.

Our Common Yew trees are supplied at a height of 80-150 cm in a 5-15 litre container for year round planting and better results than from bare-root or rootballed stock.

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Multiple Order Discount
Orders over £300 can be discounted by contacting us on 0800 043 1057

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
