Extreme gardening at Powis.
Find out how we keep our famous yew tumps in tip-top condition at Powis Castle. It’s a huge task for us to get all the trimming done. Two gardeners spend six weeks trimming the box hedge and two more spend 12 weeks working on the yew. One gardener spends about 10 weeks in the air on this hydraulic cherry-picker getting all the high trimming done.
