Laurel Compact Hedging

The Compact Laurel, Prunus laurocerasus ‘Otto Luyken’ is a much smaller growing variety of Cherry Laurel ideally suited to lower hedges of one metre or less in height. It also makes an excellent ground cover plant that will grow in sun or shade.

For larger areas of ground this variety of Laurel can be trimmed to create a very formal and eye-catching ‘Laurel Lawn’.

Compact Laurels are worth considering as an alternative for a larger Box hedge, the smaller leaves will trim nicely to give a neat manicured effect.

Like all Cherry Laurels, ‘Otto Luyken’ has rich glossy deep green leaves, they may be trimmed in autumn or spring to keep them tidy and shaped. If left untrimmed the plants will produce fragrant clusters of white flowers in late spring that develop into red cherry like berries that mature to black, these are very popular with birds.

Grow compact laurels in any soil that does not become waterlogged although if you have very thin chalky soil, we recommend the Portuguese Laurel (Prunus lusitanica) as it is more suited to these conditions.

We also grow the bigger Common and Caucasica types of Cherry Laurel if you need a larger growing variety, all members of the Cherry Laurel family will make excellent hedges.

When planting a new Compact Laurel hedge we recommend 2-4 plants per metre depending on the size of plant.

If you require more information about our Compact Laurels, or any other plants please do give our experienced sales team a call on 01580 765600.
