Last chance to plant our rootballed Laurel hedging plants

Tuesday, 14 March 2017 09:30:00 Europe/London

During winter and early spring, you can plant rootballed hedging plants. These are plants that are grown in a field (rather than in pots) and are dug with a ball of soil around the roots. They are then wrapped in hessian and can be planted as they are to form a hedge. Once plants start to grow, they can no longer be dug from the field so we have to stop selling rootballed plants. With the weather warming up, this time is now only a week or two away so if you want to plant rootballed plants, then it needs to be done very soon. Rootballed hedging plants are often - but not always - cheaper than pot-grown plants as we don't have the cost of potting them up (i.e. the pot, compost and the time taken for someone to pot them).  However, don't panic if you are not ready to plant as we have potted hundreds of rootballed Laurel ready for selling during the late spring and summer months. You can plant pot-grown plants at any time of year, they just need to be kept watered over the growing season.


We still have a good stock of rootballed Laurel available from our retail site near Taunton in Somerset (Greenshutters Nurseries & Garden Centre) and ship all over the UK using couriers.
