Cherry Laural Bushes

Zone 6 | rmetz99 added on May 21, 2015 | Answered

Planted three 4 foot bushes a year and a half ago. Heavy mulched bed. Last winter turned them brown! One had a few green branches and now several more. It did flower a few weeks back. Another is still brown, but showing new growth at the base. Another is not looking well at this time. My question: should I trim off the brown leaves or limbs? Or maybe give them a little more time? Thank you in advance! Rick Metz 99 River Corner Road Conestoga, Pa. 17516 rmetz99@comcast.net

Our long harsh winter that nearly the entire United States suffered may have did damage to your Cherry Laural.

I would trim away any damaged or dead branches and wait and see.
I have been assessing many of my shrubs and plants in my garden also! I always give plants plenty of time and care to see if they can come back.

Here is a link to the care needed for your shrubs.
