    Prunus lusitanica hedging

    From £2.50

    Portuguese Laurel (Prunus lusitanica Angustifolia) is another one of our best-selling evergreen hedging plants. This tropical looking Laurel has lovely dark green, pointed, glossy leaves on striking deep pink or maroon stems.

    Portuguese Laurel (Prunus lusitanica angustifolia) is a fabulous hedging plant and one of our best-selling evergreens. It has a tropical look due to it's glossy dark-green foliage that sits on maroon- red stems. Portuguese laurel makes a wonderful dense hedge, offering year-round screening and privacy. In the summer, small fragrant white flowers appear on this Laurel hedging, followed by red berries in the autumn that soon turn black. Both the flowers and berries of Portuguese laurel hedging are popular with wildlife, such as birds and bees, providing additional seasonal interest.

    Portuguese Laurel is very fast growing whilst growing to be very compact, meaning its an ideal hedging choice. It will suit any garden style making it a very versatile hedging choice and why it is loved so much by our customers.

    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.
