Prunus laurocerasus Rotundifolia rootballed hedging plant
Rootballed hedging plant
**Pre-order for collection or home delivery**
Better known as Cherry Laurel.
Evergreen - keeping leaves year-round. Vigorous, growing to approximately 5m in 10 years if left unclipped. Dense growth. White flowers in spring followed by red berries.
Suitable for sun or shade.
Current height is 100-125cm (3-4ft).
The cool, wet conditions of autumn are ideal for establishing hedges.
Use for privacy, for windbreaks, for wildlife and to create interest and 'rooms' in your garden.
Field-grown, they will be supplied without pots, but with hessian wraps to protect their root systems. The hessian should be left on when planted. We strongly recommend the ground is prepared beforehand, so the plants can go in as soon as you receive them. If there is any delay in doing this you should ensure they are kept frost-free and moist until they can be planted.
PLANTING & AFTERCARE: We would recommend 2 plants per metre, but planting density is largely dependent on how quick a result you would like.
Make sure you leave enough space for the eventual depth of the hedge - do not plant right up against boundaries!
Do not plant when soil is frozen or waterlogged. Make sure plants are well watered prior to planting. Application of rootbuilders such as mycorrhizal fungi or bonemeal can help plants establish.
Water hedging plants during dry spells for the first couple of years. Lightly clip plants all the way around (top and all sides) two or three times a year to encourage bushy growth.
Keep the area around them free of weeds, grass and other plants for the first year or so - you do not want them competing for nutrients.
