Is is it safe to plant veg close to yew trees?
There is an area of our garden in the SW corner that we pinpointed over the weekend for growing some veg in but our neighbour has some conifers growing close to the fence. I asked him what kind they were and he said that they are European Yews - which I thought were poisonous? Is it alright to plant within a few meters of these trees or might it affect anything I grow? It seems the ideal spot for the vegetable patch, south facing, a good distance from the house and free of shade most of the day until the sun dips behind the neighbours trees. What do you think? I really appreciate all the answers people have been providing to help me get started
