Product Information

If you need fast-growing, easy to maintain, and evergreen hedging, look no further than a classic Laurel Hedge.

Best used to produce hedges from 1m to 3m tall and quickly forming a dense canopy of shiny green leaves, Laurel grows at 30-40cm per year, but will not take over. Easy to grow and maintain, just trim to shape and height twice a year. Suitable for planting all year round, as it is pot grown, for the quickest and most successful establishment. Plant 3 plants per linear metre of hedge for best results.

Top Tips

Easy to grow in any moist but well-drained, moderately fertile soil in sun or partial shade. Its spreading habit makes it useful for low hedges and massed planting. Try clipping it low to create and evergreen laurel ‘lawn’ under specimen shrubs and trees.

Care Information

Planting Advice:

  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot and refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

Aftercare Advice:

  • Keep plants well-watered while they establish.
  • Hardy to -15°C, protect from cold winds as it is these that tend to cause the most damage to young plants.
  • Hedges may be trimmed in spring or autumn to keep them tidy and shaped, if pruning at the end of the season (when growth has finished), do it before the onset of very cold weather.
