Are laurels acid loving?
Regarding this, does Laurel like acid soil?
English laurels like evenly moist, well-drained soil, but aren't choosy about soil acidity, flourishing in anything from alkaline to slightly acid soil. The soil can be heavy clay, loamy or somewhat chalky. If your area has bright, hot summer sunlight, the planting site should receive some shade.
Also Know, what do you feed laurels? Cherry laurel feeding can be done with fertilizers formulated for ornamental trees or evergreen fertilizer. Because cherry laurels prefer slightly acidic soil, evergreen fertilizer oftentimes releases acid into the soil to meet the requirements of acidic-loving evergreens.
Moreover, what is the best fertilizer for laurels?
When you are planting a new Laurel hedge we always recommend using bone meal, this is a natural organic fertiliser that should be well mixed with the soil. One kilo of bone meal will be sufficient for a 15 metres of hedge planting.
Why have my laurel leaves turning yellow?
Nutritional deficiency – A yellowing bay laurel can be caused by a nutritional deficiency, particularly in iron. If a plant is not receiving enough iron it decreases Chlorophyll which is a vital component of photosynthesis, allowing plants to absorb energy from the sun. This results in yellow leaves at the edges.
