Bay Laurel Hedging
Laurus Nobilis are also known as bay laurels and can be used to form all sorts of shapes as well as a beautiful, sweetly scented hedge. They are evergreen and have glossy, aromatic leaves. In spring the Laurus Nobilis bears clusters of green-yellow flowers which are followed, on female plants by black berries. They make a fantastic hedge in the urban or coastal areas where severe frosts are not common. They grow well in fertile soil in full or partial sun and should be sheltered from driving, cold winds. Trim to maintain the shape in late spring.
