Portuguese Laurel hedge (Prunus lusitanica) description

Evergreen Prunus lusitanica displays pointed, glossy green leaves that contrast well with the maroon purple stems. In the summer, small fragrant white flowers appear on this Laurel hedging, followed by red berries in the autumn that soon turn black. Both the flowers and berries of Portuguese laurel hedging are popular with wildlife, such as birds and bees, providing additional seasonal interest.

Most popular uses for Portugal Laurel

Prunus lusitanica creates a great privacy screen, as it is fast growing, has a spreading habit and the foliage is compact, also making it ideal for use as a windbreak. A Portuguese laurel hedge looks fitting in a formal setting and is often used for garden situations, although it also looks lovely when planted to create an informal or cottage garden feature. Portugal laurel is a very versatile and hardy evergreen hedging variety; tolerating drought and poor, shallow soils, making it a hardier choice than even the popular Cherry Laurel.

We didn't get the size of plants we ordered (40 - 60 cm) when contacted I was told that the ones that I had been sent were in better condition than the ones I had ordered and was a £50 refund. I accepted because I couldn't wait any longer to plant the hedge!!...

On 31-Oct-2016 the supplier responded:
Service rating :Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback and I'm sorry that your plants arrived without the feed. To facilitate a speedier delivery to you, the plants were dispatched directly from our Production Site. As they usually send plants to us for our Dispatch Team to forward on they do not hold a stock of feed (this is added by us at the time of dispatch). Because of this we arranged for the feed to arrive on the same day, which did so, albeit a few hours after the plants did.

If there is anything else at all with which we can help, please do not hesitate to contact us again.
