Laurel - Bay

Bay Laurel Hedge Plants

From £13.00

Bay Laurel (Laurus nobilis) is known for its aromatic glossy dark green leaves that make it a beautiful plant for hedging and topiary.

Bay Laurel (Laurus nobilis), also known as Sweet Bay is known for its many talents, from being evergreen, one of the oldest known hedging plants in cultivation to being a hit in the kitchen. Laurus nobilis hedging boasts dark green, aromatic foliage that can be used in many cooking dishes. Bay Laurel also offers pale yellow flowers from March-May and looks great when clipped into a neat form. Bay Laurel hedging is a fairly slow grower so it keeps its shape well. 

This Laurel shrub is tender and needs to be positioned in a sheltered spot and given stem protection during the cold weather. However, Laurus nobilis is exceptionally drought tolerant and thrives in the hot sun due to its Mediterranean heritage.

1. Select Root Type

Bare Root 

Bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the planting season but they can be pre-ordered in summer to guarantee your stock. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options and the cheapest way to plant a hedge.

Root Ball 

Root ball plants are also seasonal stock as they can only be lifted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). These plants are scooped out of the ground like an ice-cream using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks.  They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly. Root ball hedging plants give an instant effect and are a cheaper alternative to instant trough grown hedging. 

Pot Grown 

Pot grown plants can be planted year round and they are our mose convenient option of hedging plants. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements. From small 2L shrubs to large 15L extra tall hedging, there will be a pot grown plant for any garden type. 

Instant Hedging 

Our Instant Hedging is grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season to create a dramatic, instant hedge effect. If you are looking for a quick fix or an instant impact, Instant Trough Grown hedging is the solution for you.
