The Genolia Laurel, sometimes called Prunus Laurocerasus ‘Genolia’, creates a stunning hedging perfect for any garden. The leaves are slightly narrow with a dark green tint to them that pairs perfectly with the emergence of snow-white flowers and red berries in the Spring. When crushed, Genolia leaves will release a sweet aroma of almonds and the British wildlife are always attracted to the berries, making your garden a hub of activity.
Our Genolia Laurels (if preferred) will grow easily over 3m in height, making them ideal for instant privacy and protection in smaller gardens. They are easily maintained if just trimmed once or twice a year, and can typically grow anywhere from 30-60cm depending on factors like watering and nutrient intake, placing them into the “fast growing hedge” category. We offer you the choice of Genolia Laurels in a range of sizes, meaning you can choose to affordably grow the hedging or receive it fully-grown and instantly have the benefits of its colour and privacy.
The Genolia Laurels have strong stems and branches, helping the plant tolerate strong winds and harsh weather conditions, so the Laurel will thrive in most locations, including coastal regions. The hardy Laurel will grow well in almost all well-drained soils and can tolerate both fully sunned and partly shaded areas, also flourishing in both hot and cold weather conditions.
The recommended planting density varies depending on the height of the plants you buy. For Example:
Small – 15-90cm: It is recommended that you plant 3-5 plants per meter
Medium – 90-150cm: It is recommended that you plant 2-3 plants per meter
Large – 150-300cm: It is recommended that you plant 1-2 plants per meter
