bare root cherry laurel hedge

Zone Prestwick South West Scotland ka92qr | parahandy added on April 4, 2015 | Answered

I have recently planted a bare root cherry laurel hedge. How far apart should I have kept the plants? The company I bought from said every 8 inches. The gardener in local Dobbies garden centre said 1 every 3 ft. Can someone advise please? Thanks, Andy

I would advise you to plant them 2-3 feet apart. 2 feet apart will give you a quick screen but, with a little longer wait, a nice dense hedge will form by planting them 3 feet apart. So you might want to go middle of the road and plant them 2'6" apart.
