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?


One side rootbase and nebari


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.
