1. How to plant Common Laurel
Common laurel should be planted in any moist but well-drained moderately fertile soil in sun or partial shade. Superb hedging shrub but may become chlorotic on poorer, shallow chalky soils.
Propagate by semi-ripe cuttings from late summer to autumn or hardwood cuttings from late autumn to late winter; propagate by seed in autumn.
2. How to care
The ideal time to prune is late spring or early summer. Especially, customers should shy away from pruning in hot days.
Leaves may be damaged by vine weevil and leaf-mining moths
3. Maintenance of Common Laurel (Cherry Laurel Hedge)
Common Laurel Hedging and Laurel hedging in general require little maintenance. One of the most important factors for a healthy hedge is weed control. Weeds at the bottom of your hedge can stop your laurel hedge from growing down to the ground. Laurel hedging can be trimmed in late spring or early summer as the hedge will produce new shoots this time of year.
