Q.Cherry laurels and the neighbour

Zone Marlborough | Princesskitty added on June 16, 2019 | Answered

I have recently planted four cherry laurels about 2.5ft high near to a fence that separates my neighbour and I. She had asked I move them because she fears they’ll take the nutrients from the soil for a rose bush she has her side. Any thoughts?

Well... One thing is for certain. They will compete for nutrients, though it is likely that the plant established first will win, leaving the other a bare bundle of dead sticks.

It is best to avoid planting near other established plants when they are larger in stature. There will always be some level of competition at the root level.
