These small Portuguese Laurel hedges are a highly economic way to plant a Portuguese Laurel (Prunus lusitanica) hedge. Being container grown, these Portuguese Laurel will quickly establish themselves in your garden representing good value for money. These plants are all sold as 1.5ft (45cm) and are growing every day.

Portuguese Laurel is relatively slow growing and one can expect up to a foot (30cm) of growth a year if left untrimmed. It forms a dense evergreen hedge with dark green leaves and produces a proliferation of small white flowers in late spring and looks good in formal situations.

Portuguese Laurel hedges make a smart addition to a garden border boundary but it can be grown as a taller hedge of 6-7ft (180-210cm) to give that all important eye level privacy if you don't mind waiting for these plants to reach that height.

A Portuguese Laurel hedge will need to be trimmed annually in the spring or autumn. We recommend trimming in the spring before a new flush of growth.

The plants in this picture are shown at 2ft (60cm) apart which is the correct distance for planting a Portuguese Laurel hedge if you are planning on achieving a hedge of 6-7ft in height.  If you are planning on maintaining a low hedge at 2-3ft (60-90cm) in height, then we would suggest planting them much closer at 40-50cm spacings.

Many people choose Portuguese Laurel as alternative to Yew, Leylandii or Laurel as it is faster growing than Yew (and still looks formal) but not as fast growing as Leylandii or Laurel.

Portuguese Laurel is tolerant of most soil types although it does not like waterlogged soil. It also grows quite happily in full sunshine or in partial shade making it versatile for a number of different situations.
