Large Bushy Cherry Laurel Hedging Plants Prunus Laurocerasus Rotundifolia 125/150cm 20 Litre - Bushy Pot Grown Plants: Pot grown for a healthy root system 2021 summer stock. Often referred to and known as Common Cherry Laurel, Laurocerasus Rotundifolia, whilst the word common is one nothing or no one likes to be tagged with, its not difficult to see why they are common. Low maintenance, fast growing, bushy, hardy, easy on the eye and evergreen what more can you want from a hedge. The large oblong foliage is bright glossy green it grows quickly to form a dense rounded evergreen hedge, perfect for creating borders or as barrier for noise or wind. Pot grown suitable for summer and early autumn planting, just ensure plenty of water until the persistent rain arrives and the ground becomes damp. 

What to expect: Good bushy plants standing at a minimum of 125cm. Plant at one per metre or tighter if you just cant wait. 

How many do i plant for a 4 metre hedge?

Plants of this size we suggest one per metre, if you wish to create something a bit quicker go for two plants, but no more. 

How tall and how quick do the grow? 

Realistically in normal conditions you can expect a growth of around 60cm (2 feet per year), ultimate height can be upto 5 metres, we recommend an annual trim to restrict height.

When and how often do i need to trim them? 

Trim at least once a year preferably in late summer, a second light trim can be done in early spring if required.

Do i need to fed them? 

Like all plants they will respond well to some aftercare, assuming you added food or fertiliser to the planting area adding some topdress annually in spring goes a long way to maintaining a healthy plant, its not a necessity, but who doesn't like a bit of tlc.

Ive not pruned them for a few years and they look very untidy can i prune hard? 

Yes assuming they are mature plants which it sounds like they are they can be cut back hard.

Can i plant in all soil types, my soil is very alkaline? 

Yes they grow in all soil types but Chalky soil should be avoided this can cause the shrub to become chlorotic (yellowing of leaves)
