The Cherry Tree that’s also a Cherry Shrub

The versatility of the Cherry Laurel makes it a favorite among discriminating landscapers.  With its convenient size of 4 feet tall, the Cherry—or English Laurel as it’s also known—can be pruned to form an ornamental hedge that will provide a showy screen for all to admire from either side.  For those who love the look of a cherry without the edible fruit, the Laurel is a sweet alternative to common hedges.
 
Put a little English on it

Imagine lining your landscape's boundaries dressed with a hedge that’s easy to care for as well as beautiful.  That’s what you get with the English Laurel.  The rich, waxy green foliage is only outdone by the white, fragrant racemes that bloom in the spring.  The soft, showy clusters of flowers give way to black berries to add the perfect accent.  

Although the Cherry Laurel possesses a gentle beauty for a hedge, its ability to withstand the most challenging environments makes it a favorite among landscapers and home gardeners.  Whether you plant it as a tree or incorporate it as a designer shrub, don’t hedge!

It's Easy to Plant your Cherry Laurel 'English Laurel'


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Cherry Laurel 'English Laurel'.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Cherry Laurel 'English Laurel' gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Cherry Laurel 'English Laurel' again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Will it work in a shady setting?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: Cherry Laurels do well in full to partial sun. If the shade comes in the morning or afternoon it will be fine. If the area is constantly shady I would suggest planting it in a sunnier area.

English Laurel: what is a good spray to kill something that is eating the leaves leaving small round holes on the leaf. I can not see any bugs on the leaf?
thanks George
george d on Jul 28, 2014
Best Answer: Seven dust or any organic pesticide will work well. It sounds like you have caterpillars. They like to munch on leaves and then leave.

Iowa gets a little too cold for the Cherry Laurel. The Soft Touch Holly is much more suited for your area.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
