These heavy duty laurel bushes are a fantastic way to create an instant hedge where immediate screening is required. Their size and bushiness reflects the fact that these are plants for those that can’t wait and want impact straight away after planting. Please be warned that these are heavy plants and cannot be lifted and moved by just one person. They are all at least 8ft (240cm) in height from the top of the pot.
We normally stock a range of sizes of large laurel hedging throughout the year including various sizes of root balled laurel plants during the colder months and container grown plants all year round. Container grown laurels are a more premium product than root balled plants as the roots will have developed well within the fertile compost in the pot to give the best chance of swift establishment when planted out in the garden.
Laurel hedging is extremely popular due to its evergreen vibrant green rounded leaves. With its relatively quick annual growth, its tolerance for different soil types and its desirability as a bird nesting site, laurel remains one of our best sellers.
These heavy duty laurel hedging plants are shown spaced at 3ft (90cm) apart in the photograph but they could be spaced slightly closer if required and one would expect a laurel hedge to put on 1-1.5ft (30-45cm) growth a year if left untrimmed. Regular trimming will encourage your laurel hedge to thicken out to create a denser visual barrier.
If planting these plants in the drier months, it is important that they are watered properly using leaky hose (sometimes described as porous pipe) which can be connected to your existing hose pipe and will slowly leak water onto the roots of your hedge in a controlled manner to ensure that it soaks in and your hedge becomes properly watered. Leaky hose is cheap, easy to install and very effective. See our Accessories page for more details on leaky hose.
