The Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus) is a large fast growing evergreen shrub which can grow to around 6m. It is hardy and is often used to create a handsome hedge or backdrop for borders. The glossy green foliage is very popular for use by florists for flower displays. For a single row hedge plant 4 plants per metre.
Please note - Our Cherry Laurel is currently classed as Forestry Grade as is showing some seasonal symptoms of a harmless fungal disease, which can be treated with a fungicide if desired (some holes in leaves) - This will not affect the plants and they will grow through this as the season progresses.
The current height of our Cherry Laurel plants is approximately 10-20cm and they can be planted out all year round.
