The flowers produce red berries which turn black later in the year a favourite with Blackbirds and other birds. Laurel hedge plants are fast growing , about 30cm per year and like any position in the garden and can reach a height of around five metres.
Laurel will grow in most conditions, even tolerating dry conditions. Laurel should be trimmed in late summer as growth begins to slow. Trim tight to avoid spreading width wise.

If required, Laurel hedging plants can be clipped to maintain a medium height, more formal hedge.
