Yew in the Ground

I finally got round to looking at this sickly cheap yew mentioned here recently.

Of course it was rootbound! 😉

A lot of these critters found – vine weevil larvae I assume?

Best side for the front.

All dead growth removed and a lot more light gets in.

Most of the foliage removed from the bottom quarter. You can see the trunks now.  A twin trunk possibility in future?

After trimming of the thickest/longest roots, it has a new home for at least a year until vigour returns. Fingers crossed.
