Prunus laurocerasus Hedging Description

Prunus lauroserasus ‘Rotundifolia’ hedging is more commonly known as English Laurel, Common Laurel or Cherry Laurel. This hedge plant showcases a bushy habit and attractive, polished green leaves all-year-round. Cherry Laurel produces stunning, modest creamy-white flowers appear that are popular with bees. The creamy-white flowers are followed by small, red fruits turning black in the autumn, providing a welcomed source of food for birds. With the continuously changing seasonal interest that this shrub offers, Cherry Laurel makes a beautiful decorative addition to any sized garden.

Best Uses for Common Laurel

Cherry Laurel hedge plants are a favourable choice to have in the garden for various reasons. They’re fast-growing species for a start and provides an effective privacy screen and shelter in all seasons, as the foliage is robust and evergreen. Another advantage to Prunus laurocerasus hedging is that it can tolerate pollution and arid sites, as well as dense shade, making it ideal for problem areas, such as poor soil or parts of your garden with minimal sunlight. Laurel hedging is low-maintenance and easy-to-grow but can also be pot-grown; used as an ornamental shrub to decorate patios or gardens with limited space. Also, Common Laurel can be trimmed to create a stunning formal appearance, it can also be left unpruned to establish something more natural in your landscape area. best4hedging recommend against planting Cherry Laurel as a hedge barrier to contain livestock, as the foliage of Prunus laurocerasus ‘Rotundifolia’is poisonous. Occasionally we hear concerns from our customers about whether dogs and children are at risk around Cherry Laurel hedges; however, there are no reported cases of any serious harm to pets or children. In the unlikely event of the leaves being consumed, should a reaction occur, an upset stomach would be the most likely outcome. But if you have any concerns, please contact a medical professional.

Combine Cherry Laurel Hedging With

Prunus hedging is traditionally planted as a stand-alone shrub due to its stunning, striking features and attractive appearance; it can have an aesthetic impact to your garden without relying on companion plants. Cherry Laurel has a slightly spreading habit, filling the surrounding space of its planting site and providing an attractive, bushy hedge that can be pruned into a smaller form if required. This is a common attribute for Laurel hedging.

Growth Rate of Prunus laurocerasus 'Rotundifolia'

When planted in optimum conditions, a Cherry Laurel hedge will achieve a growth of 30-60cm per year, with a final height of between 1.5 – 5 metres at maturity. If you’re looking for something with a smaller height and spread than Prunus laurocerasus, then take a look at our Hedging by Final Height department to help you choose a hedge suited to your garden.

Care Advice for Your Cherry Laurel Hedge

Cherry Laurel is a low-maintenance hedging species that requires a light trim once a year. However, if you're looking for a more formal aesthetic, you may want to carry out a second trim to keep the foliage neat. Prune your Laurel hedge in late winter or early spring, removing any damaged or diseased shoots. 

Suggested Planting Density for Common Laurel Hedging

For specific information on how far to space your Cherry Laurel hedge when planting, please see the product table below. In the 'No. Per Metre' column, you will find our recommended planting density for individual plant species and root type such as Prunus laurocerasus ‘Rotundifolia’.

We offer Cherry Laurel hedges in a variety of root types. Prunus laurocerasus hedges are sold as bare roots, which are available from November to late April/early May (depending on the season) and provide excellent value for money. We also have high-quality cell-grown and pot-grown plants available throughout the year. Prunus laurocerasus root balls (often big and bushy) are ready for planting in the autumn (usually from October).

The vast majority of our Cherry Laurel hedging plants are grown in the UK by experts with generations of horticultural growing experience.

  • Orders £100 & over (ex. VAT) to mainland UK are delivered FREE* (Exceptions apply - see below for Scottish Highlands etc)
  • Orders under £100 (ex. VAT) to mainland UK £9.95
  • At an additional cost, we can deliver to Scottish Highlands & Islands, which we classify as including AB (Aberdeen) and DD (Dundee) postcodes, as well as Ireland, Channel Islands, Isle of Wight and Isle Man. The exact delivery cost is order specific and will need to be quoted by one of our team, so please contact us on 01257 261 243

*For some plants that are too heavy or too tall to be packed in cardboard boxes we use pallet deliveries. In these circumstances, we require a minimum order value of £250 (ex VAT) for free delivery, or you can make a contribution towards the delivery cost. Look out for the information on product pages which explains this further where applicable and if your order is for less than £250 (ex VAT) please call or email us to agree upon a delivery contribution. This requirement only applies to those plants where it is clearly indicated on the product page

Pallet deliveries are always undertaken on an 18-tonne vehicle (similar in size to a standard refuse vehicle). If for any reason you require a smaller vehicle please contact our sales team who can arrange this for you. There will be an additional surcharge applied for small vehicle deliveries

Delivery Timescales

99% of our orders are dispatched within 10 to 14 working days of receipt and most the day after the order is placed. We can do “next day delivery” on many of our products for an additional £12 (incl VAT) but please call on 01257 494 491 before placing your order to check.

We can also deliver on a specified date to suit you. Please indicate the date you would like to receive delivery in the notes section of the checkout (or place your order by phone) and we’ll do our utmost to meet that date.

Occasional hiccups can occur (such as broken down vehicles) and although we are very experienced in logistics we cannot be held liable for costs incurred or inconvenience due to late deliveries - see terms and conditions for more information.

You will receive an email or telephone call confirming the dispatch of your order 24/48 hours before it arrives with you.

Exceptions to our quick turnaround timescale

Pre-orders - if you have placed an order that includes products on pre-order, then they will be dispatched to you as soon as they are available. If your order includes pre-order bare roots or root balls you will be notified once they are being dispatched (root balls from mid to late October and bare roots from early to mid-November).

Root balls - lifting root balls involves the use of complex, heavy machinery, this lifting is carried out twice a week in the root ball season so we do still have a prompt turnaround timescale but if your order has just missed one lifting, it will be a few days before we lift again. We are always happy to confirm when we can deliver to you before you order. The benefit of this method of supplying root balls is that they are always fresh and therefore have a higher success rate than root balls that are stored out of the soil.

Weather conditions can affect dispatch - bare root and root ball plants are not lifted if the ground is too cold (it damages the roots) and the delivery of all plants can be affected if the water supply is frozen (because we water all plants before packing). Extremely hot weather can also be challenging and occasionally we hold backorders for species that are particularly vulnerable. We ask our customers to be mindful of bank holidays when couriers are not active.

We'd like to stress that although there are exceptions, the vast majority of our orders are dispatched extremely quickly and we are proud of our logistics developed over many years of delivering plants to tens of thousands of customers.

Returns

We inspect plants carefully before dispatch but accept that very occasionally things may go wrong. 
You can return your plants (within 14 days) for a refund or replacement (we’ll help with the process of returning). If your plants arrived damaged then returns are free of charge. However, we ask that you inform us as soon as possible. If you’d like to return your plants because of a change of plan or if we do not agree that the plants are significantly damaged (the loss of a few leaves in transit or a loose pot on arrival, for example, wouldn't be harmful to the plants), then we may ask you to pay the full or partial return costs if you still wanted to return them. We’re very reasonable and always aim for complete satisfaction as demonstrated by our amazing Feefo customer reviews which can be viewed here.

Should you wish to return any products that you have over-bought, no longer require or purchased in error you will incur both a return cost (different charges for pallets and Boxes) and the original cost of delivery incurred by Best4hedging. Please contact the Service team for charges and/or to organise a return. Plants will be subject to a quality control check from our Nursery upon return before any refund is authorised and processed.

Please note that in the case of damaged plants, if you have not notified us of a problem within 14 days of delivery, we consider you to have accepted the plants and Best4Hedging has no further liability for them should they fail.
