What type of laurel
Hi all. My Escallonia is now gone - all roots dug up - bare soil, no traces left. The ground is prepared and I plan to plant a laurel hedge in there (the escallonia had a BIG Fungus problem this has also affected other escallonias in the street so treating the soil etc is out as it will come back) So now there are lots of laurels to chose from. I need one I can trim with the hedge cutters (once a fortnight is fine) so not too woody. I am right on a main road so need a good screen I guess about 4 feet high. I would like to achieve this height as soon as I can as people are just walking by and STARING in. Realistically I guess within 2 years. So please any advice on which type to get and where to buy and size to buy - would be gratefully appreciated - many thanks in advance.
