Cherry Laurel is arguably one of the best hedging plants on the market. Popular with landscape designers, these hedges are extremely dense so make an excellent screening plant while remaining highly attractive. The glossy, evergreen leaves make way for small white flowers in spring followed by red berries in autumn. This hardy evergreen will maintain its lustre all year round, providing a barrier which is not only effective as a screen but also as a noise barrier and windbreak.

Please Note: No part of this plant is edible and it should not be planted in reach of grazing animals such as horses and cattle.

Rating: 2/5

"I received 2x5 Laurels. The Laurels looked like they had been scythed down to fit in the bag, bluntly cut across the top. One set of 5 had very little foliage and that it did have looked very dry. The other set of 5 pretty much resembled twigs. I've taken a picture to illustrate in case I need to contact Primrose but after my previous customer "service" experience doubt it'd do me much good. The Laurels are planted now and every day I water them when the sun goes down but will be impressed if more than 25% of them survive, time will tell I guess."
