Any idea why my yew bushes (a bit of a hedge type) are very leggy? Thank you. Jamie

Because Yew bushes are pretty drought-tolerant, the fact that your Yew bush seems to be experiencing a growth spurt means one of two things: either the growing conditions are almost perfect in your area right now, and the bush is adding more greenery than the stems and roots can support, or it's not getting enough light and the new growth is frantically trying to catch some sun.
