How to plant a Cherry Laurel Hedging plants?
Trim the roots slightly before planting, as this will encourage healthier growth.
Dig a trenched hole in the ground in the shape of a ‘V’, deep enough for the bare root to sit comfortably so the ‘tide mark’ of the root is level with the ground. This marks the level where the bare root was previously planted before lifting for delivery. We recommend adding Rootgrow Mycorrhizal Fungi at this stage to help the plant establish well.
Ensure the roots are completely covered in soil, then firm the soil around, as water will gather in any remaining air pockets and potentially damage the roots when it freezes.
