Laurel hedge filling in
Have read lots of threads here about Laurel hedge maintenance and would like to get some specific advice please.
I have a new hedge planted earlier this year that seems to be establishing well. After lots of water and taking a good chunk off the top and overall a couple of months ago (to help conserve its energy - some leaf drop), its sprung back at the top but not too much elsewhere.
What's the best way to encourage the hedge to fill in at the bottom? What amount of pruning? What about feed?
Appreciate your advice. Thanks.
