Established Prunus Lusitanica Angustifolia AKA Portuguese Laurel, supplied in 10 litre pots with heights of 80cm+ and a spread of around 45-55cm. For hedging purposes we recommend 2 plants per metre.

Prunus Lusitanica Hedging 80-100cm 10 Litre Pot Grown: Prunus Lusitanica Angustifolia hedging, also known as Portuguese Laurel, a super choice for a slightly more decorative version of the more standard laurel hedging plants, foliage is smaller and considerably darker, stems also have a touch of red. Adding to the interest this evergreen hedging plant gives a good display of white flowers late spring and early summer, this is followed by black berries in autumn,  not a what you would class as a prolific grower it can still give new growth of 30 to 50cm per season, so can still be classed as very quick. Prunus Lusitanica is hardier than the more common Cherry Laurel varieties, so a good choice for exposed sights our the higher northern areas of the country. Easily maintained, trimming if you wish to restrict height should be carried out approximately late summer. A good plants for all situations from full sun through to light shade, it will tolerate full shade but growth speed will likely be somewhat restricted. We want your hedging plants to stand the course of the time, so are offering 1kg of Osmocte PrePlant free with all purchases of 6 plants or more, 1kg is enough for upto 20 plants and is an ideal choice to give plants a good start.

What to expect: These Prunus are pot grown and well rooted into 10 litre pots, they have an actual plant size excluding the pot of 80-100cm.

If i want to make a hedge quickly how many plants can i use per metre?

We recommend two plants per metre, you can of course go tighter than this to create the hedge quicker but in future years when they become established they may become to tight, which can make them look a little untidy.

If left untrimmed how high will they grow?

If left completely to there own devices you could realistically expect heights in excess of 10 metres with a similar spread.

Ive read Prunus doesn't do well in chalky soil is this one suitable?

Yes Prunus Lusitanica will be fine in chalky soil.

Do they need lots of watering?

Not really lots, but obviously like all plants they do need moisture however once established should be able to take as much as they need from the ground.

Are the berries edible?

No!

If they get to big can they be pruned hard?

Yes, once mature they can be pruned back hard in spring, best done before growing commences.

Can i add anything to the planting hole to give the plants a good start? 

Look no further than Osmocote PrePlant currently we are offering 1kg free, enough for 20 plants with purchases of six or more.
