Hicks Yews Hedge - Spring Growth 2020
After seeing some Winter damage (and rabbit damage) on some of our Hicks Upright yews that I planted last year, I was happy to see that the shrubs are showing off some growth this Spring. All twelve (12) of these small yews have new, fresh Spring growth on the tips. I planted these in mid-Summer of 2019 and baby'd them with a soaker hose.
I stuck some of the Jobe's fertilizer spikes in near the northern-most shrubs in an attempt to see if they work. If you recall, my goal is a wavy shrub like the one this post.
I posted some photos of these yews in my garden walk-around earlier this Spring and gave them a heavy mulch.
