Prunus Lusitanica premium hedging plant
Pot-grown hedging plant.
Better known as Portugal laurel. Glossy dark-green leaves on dark red stems.
Dense growth for a very full hedge. Evergreen - keeping leaves year-round. Easy to grow. Can go up to 5m if required.
Suitable for sun or shade, including dry shade.
Supplied as 40-60cm tall plant in 5 litre pot.
PLANTING & AFTERCARE: We would recommend 3 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. For the first few years lightly clip plants all the way around (top and all sides) two or three times a year to encourage bushy growth.
Make sure you keep the area weed-free - you do not want them competing for nutrients.
