Prunus rotundifolia - Laurel

Laurel - Prunus rotundifolia or Prunus laurocerasus as it is sometimes known is one of the best choices for an evergreen screening hedge, not only is it quick growing but its dark thick leathery green leaves and single plume type flowers makes this one of the most popular and attractive evergreen hedging plants.

Laurels come in various sizes the majority are container grown for easiness although they are available in the autumn and winter rootballed. In order to prepare the ground for planting it is best to dig the ground over first and then add a good organic compost to the planting holes.  Final spacing of the laurel plants will all depend on what size laurel bushes you decide to buy at outset.

Prunus rotundifolia is best suited to most free draining soils and is versatile in any aspect either in sun or shade. Overall, the eventual height when established can easily be over 15ft if left unpruned but like all laurel varieties they can be hard pruned to control their size.
