How to grow Cherry Laurel Cherry Laurel planting distanceYou’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. Prices shown are the price per plant unless otherwise stated. Cherry Laurel pruningShould 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.
