Taxus baccata is one of the most popular hedging plants. It can be grown as a stand-alone or hedge but is more suitable for a low hedge. The dense evergreen species can produce bright green growth in spring and red fruits in autumn. The fruits are attractive to birds but harmful to humans, livestock and pets. Taxus baccata has an exceptional hardiness and a great tolerance of shade. However, it does not require shade to thrive – a position in the full sun will be tolerated equally well.
Rootballed hedge plants are larger, bushier field grown plants grown at extra wide spacings for several years and are then lifted by a specialist rootballing machine with the soil and immediate root system, these large bushy plants are great value.
