How do I plant Laurel hedges?

It is easy to plant Laurel hedging. A correctly planted hedge will establish faster though. The key to this is making it easy for the laurel plants to establish a good root system.

  1. Decide the planting line.
  2. Dig a trench double the width of the pot or rootball and place the laurel hedging at the chosen planting distance in the trench.
  3. Fill the trench with the top fill, or ideally a high quality compost, being careful to ensure the soil is nice and loose around the roots of the laurel hedging.
