Is it possible to plant out yews even in winter?

Garden Experts
Is it possible to plant yews to fill out a garden hedge in this season of the year? Or is it better to wait until spring?

Dear Mr. S., yes, it is possible. You can plant yews at any time of year provided that the ground is not frozen. If only the top two to three centimetres are frozen, simply dig them out, put them to one side and plant into the ground beneath which is not frozen. It is crucial that the frozen earth does not contact the roots. However, you can use this frozen soil at the top of the planting holes.
