Instant Impact Cherry Laurel
(Prunus Laurocerasus Rotundifolia)

Cherry Laurel is a thick, evergreen hedge with summer flowers and autumn berries- a staple to any garden that promises foliage year-round.

Though most people know Cherry Laurel for its luscious, evergreen foliage, it also showcases intricate creamy-white flowers in Spring, that are then followed with red berries- making it look lovely and festive during the Winter. These berries are loved by the birds, too! It is the ideal species for reducing noise and wind, or as a privacy screen, as its thick foliage can easily create a dense barrier.

Instant Impact Prunus laurocerasus Rotundifolia hedging will look best as a standalone hedge, but you can always plant with other Laurel varieties if looking for a mix- though it does have quite a spreading habit, so the space you do have will likely be filled up very quickly and easily by Cherry Laurel.

Please note, all parts of the Cherry Laurel (including leaves/berries) are toxic to both humans and animals when consumed. Though the plant does not hold much attraction to pets/children, it is particularly advised to avoid planting near livestock. If you are concerned about your pets and children, it is best to choose Bay Laurel (the only non-toxic Laurel).

Cherry Laurel will grow well in most conditions, including dry soils and heavily shaded sites- though coastal gardens/alkaline soil is not recommended.

Do not plant near livestock, either, as the leaves and berries are harmful if eaten.

  • Growth rate: Average-fast (30-60cm per year)
  • Ideal height: 1.5-5m Tall
  • Soil type: Normal, dry
  • Exposure: Inland, exposed
  • Aspect: Full sun, full shade
  • Evergreen foliage? Yes

Buying Instant Impact makes it even easier- your plant will arrive on your doorstep fully matured, established, and ready to plant! All the beginning hard work has been done for you- you don't even have to worry about the No. per metre. 1 instant impact trough = 1 metre of hedging.

General hedge trimming of Cherry Laurel should be done twice a year- once in June and again in September. Only prune at these times so you don't remove any new growing shoots.

If you feel the need to hard prune your hedging, March is the best time to do so. If it becomes too woody, you can take it down to ground level to get it growing back looking new and fresh. Just don't prune too often as this can lead to the Cherry Laurel looking a bit shabby.

Root Types Summary

  • Bare Root
    Bare Root

    Field grown, bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from autumn to spring. We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the season but they can be pre-ordered in summer. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options.

  • Pot Grown
    Pot Grown

    Pot grown plants can be planted year round and make a convenient option. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements.

  • Root Ball
    Root Ball

    Also field grown, root ball plants are scooped out of the ground using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks. They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly.

  • Instant Hedging
    Instant Hedging

    Grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season. Our instant hegding troughs create a dramatic, instant hedge effect.
