Few hedgerows quite match the rich and dense evergreen foliage of a Cherry Laurel.
Also known as English Laurel, these hedges of glossy green leaves act as remarkable backdrops for garden displays up and down the country, featuring springtime shows of dainty white flowers.
In the winter months, when most other plants and gardens are starting to tire, the flowers fade to make way for festive displays of cherry-red berries, providing food for birds at a time when they most need it.
Recommended by the RHS as a ‘Plant for Pollinators’, the floral aroma of these blooms draw the attention of bees and other insects to transform the garden into a haven for wildlife.
These hardy hedges will perform well when planted in most soil types and areas of the garden, including full sun or partial shade, although they are not suitable for coastal conditions.
Cherry Laurel bushes grow by 30-60cm every year, making them easy to control at a reasonable garden height.
Supplied as a bare root hedge, 60-90cm tall, ready for planting.
