How To Plant Mount Vernon English Laurel

English Laurel shrubs prefers to grow in a location that has moist to well-draining soil. These shrubs are drought tolerant once established. English Laurel will thrive anywhere, whether that's somewhere with full sun or full shade, they enjoy both.

How To Water

English Laurel will appreciate occasional watering during prolonged dry weather. Once Laurels are established, they are considered drought tolerant and can sustain long periods of time in between waterings.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

Mount Laurels are relatively low maintenance so they should only really be pruned to remove dead, damaged, or crossing branches to promote healthy growth.
