Duke Gardens Plum Yew Care
When caring for a Duke Gardens Plum Yew Tree, make sure to water it regularly, especially during dry spells. These trees do not tolerate standing water, so be sure to plant them in a location with good drainage. Fertilizing the tree with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer once a year can also promote healthy growth. These trees prefer partial shade and well-draining soil, so it is best to plant them in an area that receives a few hours of direct sunlight each day and is protected from heavy rainfall or standing water. Other factors to consider when choosing the planting site include water availability, nearby plants or structures, and proximity to power lines and underground utilities. Mulching around a Duke Gardens Plum Yew Tree can help to retain moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature, all of which can contribute to the overall health and growth of the tree.
Pruning is generally not necessary for the Duke Gardens Plum Yew, as it has a naturally neat and tidy shape. However, if the tree becomes overgrown or develops any damaged or diseased branches, you can trim them back to maintain the tree's overall health.
