I have a yew hedge at the back of a flower bed . Will the clippings poison the soil if I leave them there ?



It will be fine to leave the Yew where it is , it is poisonous to animals not other plants.

we rarely pick up the clipping of ours and that has been in place for about 20 yrs. so no need to worry.

welcome to Goy too :o)

I always put a large plastic sheet down when I cut my Yew hedge so it's easier to collect the clippings as the hedge is on the side of our front drive.
