Hi MM. does that include cherry laurel? I was looking at getting some as they also have extra floral nectaries I believe. Di.
Do not be tempted by these monsters!
I've got them and they grow at a rapid rate needing heavy pruning twice a year, let no light through their dense leaf growth and nothing grows near them. Good side is you can make dye from their berries.
Stick to the roadie doe does! They have flowers and presumably you only have one or two.

sorry dont know, i use to work at rothampsted ( not the Bee unit) so i will email an ex colleague who has just retired from there, see if he know s


Anyway ,you will only get done for selling hallucinogenic drugs if the cherry laurel does, perhpas you will get more return customers :party:
