Cherry or Common Laurel Hedge Plants Description

It produces modest white flowers in spring and red berries in Autumn, but both are insignificant and really it is chosen for its vibrant foliage. Cherry Laurel cell grown and pot grown plants are available all year round. Bare roots are only available from November to late April/early May. Root Balls are available from mid-October to mid-April.

Cherry Laurel growth rate is relatively fast at approx 30/60cm which makes it a very economical way to achieve a good height of evergreen hedge. It should be trimmed to shape in Spring or Autumn.

Laurel is hardy and is very easy to grow, including in dense shade, but is not the most suitable choice for seaside gardens or very alkaline soil.

Like other Laurel varieties (other than Bay Laurel), the leaves and berries are harmful if eaten.

Cherry Laurel is by far the most popular fast growing Laurel hedges, but we do also have the following additional varieties - Portuguese Laurel, Spotted Laurel, Laurel Etna, Compact Laurel, Laurel Caucasica and Bay Laurel. We also supply a huge range of high quality evergreen hedge plants as great additions or alternatives to Laurel hedging or you can see our entire range of Laurel species in our ultimate guide to Laurel hedging for more information.

New website!

Cherry Laurel is just one of our top ten species. If you are wanting to look around the site for other species or products and aren't sure where to go on this new site, our handy video can give you a great overview.

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.
