Evergreen and gorgeous, topiary makes a permanent feature in your garden all year round. The English Yew (Taxus baccata) is a stunning tree, known for its longevity, that lends itself perfectly to shaping and containerising.
Yew leaves are small and dark green and needle-like in shape which makes it ideal for trimming into a variety of fine topiary shapes, then in autumn they are highlighted perfectly with the succulent red berries.
Yew typically grows in a conical shape, getting broader with age and provides formal structure within the garden whether planted as a hedge or grown in a beautiful container.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience.
You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
One of the advantages of buying a ready-made topiary, besides saving you time and effort, is that you get a strong, disease-free plant, which guarantees a vigorous new specimen.
Supplied as a round ball topiary, 30cm (12in) in diameter in a 26cm (10in) pot, keep clipped regularly to maintain size.
