About yew

Why are yew trees best for hedges?

Because they are evergreen, beautifully colored in spring and taking on an intense deep color in winter. Regularly trimmed, they become a thick, green wall. Yews are also very tolerant of urban conditions, it is possible to plant them in various conditions – full, or partial sun or even in full shade. Yew tree has excellent regenerative abilities, which means that in cases of fractures or damages it is able to rebuild completely and turn green again. The variety we offer is a female variety that ties seeds with red aril, which looks really impressive. Moreover, yew tree is the best material for topiary, it can be formed into any shape.

Why to buy from us?

We have been gaining our experience in cultivation of yew trees for over 40 years already, therefore our goods fulfill high standards of quality and health. We plant and we highly recommend yew tree in the variety of Hicks (lat. Taxus x media ‘Hicksii’) which is exceptionally versatile and frost-resistant and which grows relatively fast. What is more, our yew trees are planted in containers, they are not dug from the ground and, therefore it is possible to plant them throughout all the year. As a consequence, we have an intact root ball in comparison to dug plants, hence they take roots wherever they are planted without any problem.


Yew tree is not a time-consuming plant to take care of. It is enough to trim it once a year – this way it grows better, it is stronger and thicker. It should be fertilized in spring with long-lasting fertilizers (like Osmocote) and, if necessary, also with dolomite. Such work is a pleasure!

Prestige in your garden!

For years yew trees were a synonym of luxury in gardens and were a sign of prestige of the owner. War times caused pushing yews to the background. At present pursuit of cheapness makes yew tree an expensive plant. However, planting not very valuable plants in our gardens is like with low-grade goods – after some time we start searching for something more durable and long-lasting. Yew trees planted hundreds of years ago can still be spotted all around the world: Gardens of Versailles (France), Gardens of Habsburg Residences in Vienna – Schonbrunn and Hoffburg (Austria), Residence of Swedish Royal Family, Drottningholm (Sweden), Levens Hall Gardens (Great Britain), Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew (Great Britain), Alhambra in Granada (Spain), Łazienki Park (Poland), Park in Żelazowa Wola (Poland) and many others.
