Hi I've just joined the site and just kind of starting out. Could any one tell me how far laurel should be planted from the house? As I'm told mine is too close
I think a lot of people here will say that any laurel, at any distance, is too close.
They grow huge if left unpruned and even then they grow about three foot a year.
If you must have a laurel, make sure there is a good seven feet on either side of it as it will just elbow its way into every bit of space you give it.
