How to Grow and Look After your Laurus
Best suited to fertile soil in full or partial sun and should be sheltered from cold winds.
Regular pruning is not required but can be trimmed to maintain the shape in late spring.
If you are choosing to plant these in pots, then opt for a peat-based compost with extra grit to improve drainage. They will need regular watering and a good granular fertiliser from spring onwards.
