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 and 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.

Duke Gardens Plum Yew Spacing

The Duke Gardens Plum Yew Tree can grow up to 5 feet tall and wide, so space it about 5 feet apart, center on center, to allow it to reach its mature size.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
