Prunus laurocerasus – Cherry laurel 8-10cm girth

The Prunus laurocerasus is an evergreen tree with large, glossy green leaves, masses of small white fragrant flowers in upright racemes that emerge in spring and small red/black cherry-like fruits in autumn. The standard trees have a clear stem (that will not grow) and a bushy head of foliage that will continue to grow in height and width, this head of foliage is designed to sit above a standard 6ft fence panel in order to create a stilted hedge. This raised hedge with screen unsightly views from the property e.g., neighbour’s windows, satellite dishes, extensions. We recommend planting the trees 1.2-1.5m apart to form an uninterrupted screen. If only one tree is required, it can be strategically placed to screen unsightly views from your property.

Cherry laurels are fast-growing trees that will grow between 30-50cm a year once established. These trees can take very hard pruning if required to control the growth and thicken the plant, this means that the trees can be kept clipped in a more formal shape or left just to grow into their natural form.
