How to grow yew

This native evergreen can be grown as a tree or clipped to form hedging or topiary. As a hedge, large or small, it can provide a dark green backdrop to borders or form a sturdy sheltering screen along boundaries. Its dense growth and red berry-like fruits provide valuable shelter and food for wildlife.
