Prunus Rotundifolia (Cherry Laurel) 18 Litre Pot, 130-150cm Planted Height
130-150cm hedging plant, in a pot. NOTE – this height is measured from the top of the pot, i.e. the final planted height, from base of stem to top of growth.
Cherry laurel (prunus rotundifolia) is a fast growing hedging plant that is easy to grow.
‘Rotundifolia’ is vigorous, bushy and upright in habit, reaching a height of 5m. Oblong, glossy leaves are twisted around upon themselves, and are pale green beneath. Cup-shaped fragrant white flowers in upright racemes 5-12cm long in mid and late spring are followed by cherry-like red fruits, ripening to black.
Prunus can be deciduous or evergreen trees or shrubs with showy flowers in spring, and often good autumn foliage colour. Some have edible fruit in autumn, and a few species have ornamental bark.
The plants should be planted and thoroughly watered as soon as possible after delivery, to avoid drying out.
Feeding & Aftercare
We recommend to plant with Westland Bone Meal (which acts as a root stimulant) and 6X Fertiliser (a long acting fertiliser). The plants should also be fed from Springtime onwards with Chempak No. 2.
