Bay Laurel Hedge Plants Description

The Bay Laurel hedge is popular for its leaves that are commonly used during cooking, either dried or fresh from the garden. It will fill your garden with scent, as well as bringing privacy to your outdoor space throughout the year. You can find more herbaceous hedging in our edible hedging department.

Laurus nobilis prefers fertile, moist soil due to its Mediterranean heritage, flourishes in the sun and is resilient against droughts, but it should ideally be grown in a sheltered area to protect its delicate stem during the winter.

A slow-growing hedge, Bay Laurel will typically grow around 10-20cm per year and is easily maintained at 1-2m. It is a low-maintenance hedging plant, only requiring a light trim in summer to help it keep its shape.

If you are interested in filling your garden with fragrant Bay Laurel hedging plants, Hedges Direct has a range of other wonderfully scented fragrant hedging plants for you to browse.

Laurus nobilis is also a popular choice as a Topiary Standard, featuring a long stem and a round, leafy head, sometimes described as lollipop topiary.

For more information about Bay Laurel, call the team on 01257 263 873 or email us at [email protected] Alternatively you can view our Laurel hedging guide which has information on Laurus nobilis and all our other Laurels, for comparison.

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.
