Yew and non-yew

From Mrs Laura Garnham
Sir, — I wonder how many of the original Millennium yew trees have actually suvived (“Resurrection for Malaga yew”, News, 11 January).

Our episcopally blessed yew at All Saints’, Wrabness, carefully nurtured by the churchwarden (my late husband), protected from rabbits and moles, regularly watered, etc., did not flourish, and was discreetly replaced.

My suspicion is that those little twigs sent out were sub-standard, and no bishops’ blessings could renew them. Our replacement has flourished.
