I love yew. make sure you order at least one male plant or you wont get arils [red berry like fruits]. It is a species that is dioecious meaning male and female plants are separate like holly.

They're grown to 4 ft now, snipped off the top off one! Can't bring myself to do any more yet, will take a pic later. 1 is different to the rest, maybe that's a female.
