Can someone please tell me how and when is the best time to take cuttings from a laurel shrub in order that I can create a laurel shrub hedge to replace my Leylandi which has died. Thanks Decker



Hi , I've been looking into this too, and from what I understand it is quite hard to take cuttings from laurels.. But it worth a try , soft wood cuttings taken late summer and put into a 50:50 mixture of compost and grit is what I have heard some people having success with.. I'll being trying the same thing myself..
