do you think its going to survive after its move from next door, as its looking more and more droopy each day?
thanks i have just been out and given it a huge water and will do the same this evening.
i did notice when i was re-planting it that the root ball was quite small.
Portuguese Laurel leaves have red leaf stalks. That might be a small leaved clone of Cherry laurel, there are dozens of clones of Cherry laurel with different sized leaves.
I think you could safely reduce the length of the branches by half. I guess you will loose all of the leave,but not to worry keep it well waterered and you will soon be seeing green shoots!
I don't think that's either of the laurels mentioned. That's not the way they droop and die off.
I agree it's got to be hacked back and soon if it's going to survive. A small rootball can't support that lot
Thanks for all your replys
month on - this srub died back then I notic there was a crack all the way up the main trunk. No leaves although there are a lot of shoots coming out of the bottom, I'm currently thinking about chopping it down to the new shoots and seeing what happened
