Q.when does the cherry laurel bush begin to blossom in Ohio?

I planted cherry laurel bushes summer of 2013. Some face east and some face southwest. The leaves turned brown this winter and so far this spring, there seems to be no sign of life or white flower blossoms. When do they usually show signs of life?

Cherry laurel flower April - May; if you're not seeing anything on yours, you may have lost it. See if you can snap pieces off the branches; if they're crispy, it's dead. Possibly the extremely severe winter was just too much for a newly planted bush. But be a bit more patient, it might start growing.

Also, next fall you might want to think about more protection for newly planted bushes. This article has some advice: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/protecting-plants-winter.htm
