Here’s why you should get to know Cherry Laurel:

  • Beautiful, resilient tree grows well in urban settings
  • Versatile and compact enough to use as a hedge or shrub
  • Incredible white blooms resemble cherry flowers
  • Sweet fragrance

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!

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

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.
