Calling Taxus aficionados! Are these decent specimens to start a Yew hedge?
Hi all, I saw these Taxus baccata at B&Q, quite tall (to about 80cm) and £8 each. That seemed good value to me (though I failed to clock the pot size for likely rootball size).
However these tall, relatively skinny offerings may not be the best bet. Hedging can be a funny thing - sometimes better to start smaller and pinch out etc.
They’d be for topiarised yew hedges in two 45cm high, 1.8m long troughs flanking a path to divide a garden. Reckon 3 or 4 plants in each for them to stitch together given time?
Any tips and feedback gratefully received.
