Bay Laurel (Laurus nobilis) Hedge Plants Description

Bay Laurel is one of the oldest shrubs in cultivation, originates from the Mediterranean, is also known as Sweet Bay and of course it is the source of the bay leaves used fresh or dried in cooking.

Bay Laurel is fully evergreen, likes a fertile, moist well drained soil and sun or partial shade. It is quite tender and needs to be positioned in a sheltered spot and given some stem protection in cold weather. If the situation is not suitable for Bay Laurel, then Portuguese Laurel, which has a similar appearance and slowish growth rate but is much hardier, is a good alternative, even for very formal hedges. For even more options suitable for tricky growing sites, see also our range of hedging for exposed sites

Bay Laurel is a popular variety of Laurel hedging, but we do also have the following additional varieties - Cherry Laurel, Portuguese Laurel, Spotted Laurel, Laurel Etna, Compact Laurel and Laurel Caucasica.

See our entire collection of scented hedge plants for species that will fill a garden with incredible smells.

See our Laurel Hedging Guide for more information.

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. Prices shown are the price per plant unless otherwise stated.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Bay Laurel is slow growing and only needs a light trim in summer to keep it in shape. With large bushes make sure there are no birds nesting.
