How To Water
For best growing conditions when first planted water deeply and keep the ground moist but not soggy to avoid root rot until established. Once settled in water as needed. Prompting drought tolerance, we advise checking your local weather during hotter, more dry periods and water accordingly.
How To Fertilize
Feed Maki Yew Plum Pines in the spring as it begins to actively grow for the season; we recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food.
How To Prune
The pruning needs of the Maki Yew Plum depends on how you choose to display it. With the slower growth habit and dense evergreen foliage this shrub is a popular option for topiary. While most other pruning needs are to remove any damaged or diseased branches, you may do a full pruning in fall to promote new growth in the upcoming spring.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
