          Yew makes an ideal hedging plant and can be used for topiary as it responds very well to clipping.
          Rootball plants come from the field with the soil and roots wrapped with a biodegradable hessian wrap. Do not let the rootball dry out before planting, and they should be planted 2-3 days after delivery. Plant with the hessian still around the roots, this will rot away over time. Don't plant to deep, keep the top of the rootball to the same level of the ground. Water as necessary but watch out in the first year for signs of stress if the weather is very hot.
