We are specialists in evergreen plants and we offer the widest possible range of quality plants. English (cherry) laurel is probably the most common and reliable species.

If you like cherry laurels, all of them will look boring next to this specialty. Marbled White is an extraordinary variety with creamy white marbled leaves. They are quite large and for the best contrast it should be placed in semi-shade or shade. This shrub has upright, pyramidal growth. Non flowering. It can be pruned in the spring.

Laurels need slightly deep and fertile, acidic, moist soil, and extra watering in frost-free periods in winter to prevent from drying out before the ground gets frozen. It will thrive in full sun or part shade, and will also tolerate being grown in full shade. It seldom suffers from chlorosis (leaves turning yellow owing to lack of iron in the soil) but when it does use a special liquid soil pH balancer to keep it acidic which will help the plant absorb iron. Fully hardy to -24°C (USDA zone 6) and withstands a few nights of -27°C (zone 5b).
