A popular hedging plant, Cherry Laurel has dense evergreen foliage that make it ideal for privacy, windbreaks and screening. The large glossy leaves provide a backdrop for the creamy-white flowers in spring, a pollinating insects haven, which then turn into cherry red berries, making a feast for hungry birds in the winter months. Easy to grow, only needing an annual clipping too, making it very low maintenance.Height: 8m (26'). Spread: 4m (13'). Supplied as 50 - 80cm bareroots (20 31") Height: 8m (26'). Spread: 4m (13').

Flowering Months
Water regularly throughout the growing season until young plants are fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant. Once established, Prunus plants require only occasional attention, removing any damaged stems and lightly trimming those that spoil the shape of the plant in summer after flowering. If grown as a hedge, Cherry Laurel can be trimmed from early to mid spring, and tolerates hard pruning when necessary.
Grow Cherry Laurel plants in sun or shade, in any moderately fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. Plant Prunus shrubs at the same depth as they were planted in their pots. Backfill the planting hole and water well to settle the soil. When planting a Cherry Laurel hedge, position the individual plants at a distance of 75cm (30") apart.
