For a sophisticated landscape look, try the dark green good looks of the evergreen Fairview Yew (Taxus x media 'Fairview'). It features a very useful, rounded growth habit that stays compact.
Perfect to create a long-lived hedge, Fairview Yew grows beautifully in either full sun or shade. If you need a long foundation planting, the Fairview would be a perfect choice.
There is a reason why people have loved Yews for thousands of years. They are easy-care but bring structure to any garden design.
Fairview is well known in the industry as a lovely evergreen workhorse. It can be clipped to a polished presentation. It looks great when left natural to grow as it will. Trust us, even a natural Yew will never, ever look unkempt.
For a hedge, we recommend planting them 3 feet apart. Measure from the center of one to the center of the next plant.
Yews grow relatively slowly but live a very long time. For Yews, it's always best to buy the largest size container we have available. Our growers focus on healthy root production and will not shift a plant into a larger container until it's ready. Rest assured, when you buy a Yew from Nature Hills, you're giving the best possible start to your long-term garden design.
Yews must have well-drained soil to thrive. If you see puddles in your planting area after a rain, you'll need to bring in additional soil. "Mound up" to 18 - 24 inches above your soil line, then plant in that mound. It's a good idea to add 25% soil conditioners like compost or pine bark to your native soil.
Dig a wide hole, but no deeper than the pot. Please don't plant Yews too deep. Use care when planting, as Yew roots are delicate.
Baby your Yews, you'll be glad you did!
Feed your Fairview Yew Dr. Earth Acid Lover's Organic and Natural Premium Fertilizer in early spring and mid-summer.
Give it a regular schedule of supplemental water if rainfall isn't sufficient. This is especially important when the plants are young.
The Fairview Yew is a wonderful choice. Use them as a hedge, or plant one as a pretty specimen that will bring a deep green presence to your landscape all year long. Order today!
