Laurel Hedging Plants

Cherry Laurel hedges are one of the most popular evergreen hedging plants that we sell because they are fast growers. These Prunus Laurocerasus ‘Rotundifolia’ plants are 80-100cm high in 10 litre pots and can be planted at 2 plants per metre.

Laurel hedging plants, encompassing various species within the Prunus genus and the Rosaceae family, are commonly employed to establish hedges in diverse landscapes. Among the preferred selections is the Cherry Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus), recognized for its dense foliage and adaptability to different environmental conditions. Sporting glossy, dark green leaves, fragrant white spring flowers, and autumnal black berries, the Cherry Laurel thrives in various soil types and sunlight exposures.

Bay Laurel (Laurus nobilis):

While renowned for its culinary use, the Bay Laurel is also employed for hedging, characterized by aromatic leaves and an upright growth habit. Often pruned to maintain a formal and fragrant hedge, Bay Laurel contributes both aesthetic and functional qualities to garden settings.

Portugal Laurel (Prunus lusitanica):

Another favoured option for hedging is the Portugal Laurel, also known as Portuguese Laurel. Featuring glossy, dark green leaves akin to the Cherry Laurel but in a more compact growth form, it produces fragrant white flowers and red berries, adding visual interest to hedges.

Key Features

Laurel hedging plants are esteemed for their dense foliage, serving as effective privacy screens and windbreaks. Their versatility allows for application in various landscaping designs, from formal hedges to more informal arrangements. With a moderate growth rate, these plants benefit from regular pruning to maintain desired size and shape.

Planting and Care

Thriving in well-drained soil and favouring sunny to partially shaded locations, Laurel hedging plants necessitate adequate spacing for optimal growth. Regular watering and mulching contribute to their overall health, ensuring a vibrant and robust hedge.

Pruning and Maintenance Of Laurel Hedges

Regular pruning is crucial, especially during the growing season, to shape Laurel hedges and prevent excessive legginess. Proper trimming practices help maintain the desired height and thickness, contributing to the hedge’s aesthetic appeal.

Disease Resistance

Laurel hedging plants generally exhibit resistance to numerous pests and diseases. Implementing good care practices, such as appropriate spacing and pruning, further enhances their resilience and overall health.

Caution

It’s important to note that certain Laurel species, particularly Cherry Laurel, contain toxic compounds in their leaves. Consequently, cautious consideration is advised, especially in areas accessible to pets and children.

Laurel hedging plants, including Cherry Laurel, Bay Laurel, and Portugal Laurel, offer an array of options for creating visually appealing and functional hedges. Their adaptability, privacy-enhancing qualities, and potential for diverse landscaping designs make them popular choices for a variety of garden settings. Always consider the specific needs of the chosen Laurel species and adhere to proper care and pruning practices for the successful establishment of a healthy and attractive hedge.
