Planting & Care
Planting Instructions: They’re adaptable, resistant to disease, pests and more, but your Yew Podocarpus needs proper care to thrive.
First, choose an area with at least 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day. After scouting the location for your Yew, dig a hole that’s at least two to three times wider than your tree’s root ball. Once you’ve placed your Podocarpus, back fill its soil, tamp down to avoid air pockets and then water to help establish its roots.
Watering: It’s moderately drought tolerant, but regular waterings are important (one or two thorough waterings weekly) for the first few growing seasons to establish the Yew’s root system. If you’re not sure when to water your Yew, simply check the surrounding soil, down to around 2 or 3 inches. If your tree’s soil is dry, it’s time to water it.
Once it’s established, you can reduce frequency, but somewhat regular watering is important (depending on your soil needs, once a week should be fine).
Fertilizing: The Yew Podocarpus is slow growing, so it benefits from fertilizer. Feed your tree with a well-balanced formula in early spring, before new growth emerges.
Pruning: Prune your Yew Podocarpus Tree annually for your desired shape or landscape needs.
