Buying Yew on eBay

Posted: 24/10/2016 at 21:44

thanks all for the replies. Hedges Direct are selling similar size bare root plants but for £1.30 ish more per plant. I did message the seller and they said that they had purchased too many when planting their hedge last year and had planted these spare plants while they found a place for them but decided they didnt need them hence the sale. Thoughts gardeners??

Very true, ive bought plants off ebay before and most have thrived. It's just such a big purchase for me and would be put off if they turned out to be duds. all part of the fun i guess.

Any opinions on this listing on eBay? I'm wanting to plant a hedge and having looked around online, Yew is pretty expensive and these work out cheaper than most. Does the plant look reseaonably healthy to the more experienced eye? Would be good to get a bargain sometime!! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bare-Root-Yew-Plants-Taxus-/262687872021?hash=item3d296ad415:g:2PMAAOSwnbZYDN1v

It is yes; it did produce a couple of flowers this year but it is still young, <2 year old. The scent was something else

Is there any specfic pruning needed? it will grow on a south facing wall with shelter from the east winds so hoping it will survive in Derbyshire!!! I have some spare wire so hoping it will be suitable but if wooden trellis is recommended maybe i need to rethink?

What is the best support system for common Jasmine? Will horizontal wires work or is chicken mesh better to let it twine around? Many thanks!

i've got 3 rosemary cuttings that are doing well and i want to plant them into terracotta pots; does the soil in the pots need to be "poor" (gravely, sandy etc) or does it need to have lots of compost and good drainage? The thiught being that i want lots of leaves not flowers.. Opinions??
