Common Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus ‘Rotundifolia’) is an evergreen shrub that makes a bright, dense Instant Hedge. Also known as Cherry Laurel, it’s shiny lime green leaves are thick and leathery, providing perfect evergreen screening. A Common Laurel Instant Hedge is also a good choice if you are looking to reduce noise levels, for example, from a busy road.

The ideal situation for this evergreen hedging is in nutritious soil that is not too heavy.  Prunus laurocerasus will thrive in most soils, including clay, but it dislikes (shallow) chalk when Portuguese Laurel would be perfect. This Instant Hedge is happy in either sun or shade.

We have Laurel available at 1.3/1.5m, 1.5/1.8m and 1.8m high as a Practical Instant Hedge.

A Laurel hedge is fast growing (30 – 40 cm/year) and should be trimmed at least once a year, in July or August.
