Prunus laurocerasus Hedge Plants Description

Although primarily known for its stunning, rich green foliage, Cherry Laurel hedging also produces delicate white flowers in the spring and festive red berries throughout the winter, adding year-round interest to your garden. Due to its density, Cherry Laurel is ideal as a privacy screen or to reduce noise and wind. Its adaptability and striking appearance make Cherry Laurel one of the most popular types of Laurel hedging.

Cherry Laurel hedging has a relatively fast growth rate of around 30 - 60cm per year, making it an economical way to achieve height. In fact, Cherry Laurel can easily grow to between 20 - 30ft high over time, but it is easy to maintain to a lower height. It is also resilient and grows well in most conditions, including in shaded areas, although it is not the most suitable choice for coastal gardens or alkaline soil. Just like most hedges in the Laurel family - other than Bay Laurel - the leaves and berries are harmful if consumed.

Cherry Laurel cell-grown and pot-grown plants are available all year round, whilst bare root Cherry Laurel hedging is available from November to early May, and root balls are available from mid-October to mid-April.

As well as the ever-popular Cherry Laurel hedging, Hedges Direct has a fantastic range of Laurel hedges including Portuguese Laurel, Spotted Laurel, Laurel Etna, Compact Laurel, Laurel Caucasica and Bay Laurel.If you'd like to find out more about Laurel hedging and which would be right for your garden, take a look at our helpful Laurel Hedging Guide.

Premium Products - Call to order or enquire

Premium products (indicated by a forklift icon and 'Premium Product' in the product table), require specialist delivery due to their size and weight.

*All premium products are excluded from any promotional discounts.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed next to the products below. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

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.
