How to take care of Prunus Laurocerasus Caucasica x 5
For best results soak the roots for approx 2 hrs before planting and water well after planting and for the next few weeks. It makes an excellent hedging plant. Plant in moist but well drained soil, it can cope with deep shade under trees as well as full sun. Water well for a few weeks after planting & never allow them to dry out completely. Laurels can be tough but they are not tolerant of waterlogged soil. Produces pretty white flowers mid spring & cherry red berries which are harmful if eaten in autumn. It is fast growing, it will grow into a loose tree if allowed to go unpruned, prune late spring or early summer after flowering. Cut out damaged & unwanted shoots. IMPORTANT All parts of the plant are harmful if eaten. Do not apply fertilizer until your trees have been in the ground for at least 6 -8 weeks. It could burn the new roots.
As with all trees from the prunus family, the leaves will start to appear autumnal and slightly shabby from summer onwards . This is not a disease, but is mainly due to this years contrasting weather conditions and will not affect the performance of the tree.
