Good morning all. I have a row of cherry laurel planted and this will be there 3 rd year of growth. They are roughly about 8ft to the tallest shoot. Was just wondering what is the best thing to feed them and when to feed them to get maximum growth from them this year? Any help will be great tahnks.



good morning Mark, I would wate untill the soil is a bit wormer then give them a feed of BFB (blood fish and bonemeal ) you can get a tub at your garden center.

As you have already nipped off the lead shoots you should get a spread in the growth at the top. As already suggested a dressing of BFB in March, at this time water underneath with a solution of Armillatox. In April make up a solution of Epson salts, with a second application in June. Do not overwater on your timer. Best times are a few minutes at 10pm. then longer at 4a.m. Grow, grow, grow.
