    Cherry Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus 'Rotundifolia') Hedges are our number one selling evergreen hedging plant and no wonder. Cherry Laurel has large dense leaves that will stay a bright, glossy green all year round, so it is sure to brighten up any garden even on the dullest of days.

    Cherry Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus 'Rotundifolia' ) hedging makes a wonderful, fast-growing privacy screen that provides year-round interest. Cherry Laurel is mainly noted for its bright and dense leaves which makes this hedging plant the perfect hedge. It produces modest white flowers in spring and red berries in autumn, but both are insignificant, as this Laurel hedging species is chosen for its vibrant foliage. 

    This hedging plant will suit any garden type and can tolerate pollution and very dry sites, as well as heavy shade, making it ideal for problem areas, such as poor soil or parts of your garden with very little sunlight. You can plant Cherry Laurel alone as it does well as a standalone hedge, it also looks great too, but you could plant with other Laurel varieties if you are looking for a mixed hedge. You can prune Cherry Laurel as often or little as you like, to keep it as a formal hedge or leave to grow to be informal. 

    Please note we do not recommend to plant this hedging plant if you have livestock as the leaves can be poisonous to animals, also the berries are harmful if eaten.

    Should you need to hard-prune your Cherry/Common Laurel, then March is the time to do this. Established plants that have become woody can even be taken down to ground level and will come back looking refreshed. General hedge trimming should be done twice a year, once in early June and again in late September. It is important to prune at the right time, so as not to remove new growing shoots. You can of course leave Cherry Laurel without pruning - which many people choose to do - as the thick, lush leaves can look tatty if too regularly trimmed.

    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.
