Hi All,

Will a laurel hedge grow in a wet bog.

my garden is on a bog and in some areas it can be very wet. Especially in the winter. often waterlogged in spots.

I took some laurel cuttings in the summer and about 50 of them have rooted, just wondering if they will grow in this area.

Thanks

My neighbour planted a Laurel Hedge and where it was very wet the plants aren't doing so well (But still growing)

Against that, down the road from us are a couple of acres of no-man's land, very marshy and boggy and Laurels are taking over there.

So, I've no definite answer for you. I'd just try it. You've nothing to lose really.

Cheers Kindredspirit,

As you said I've nothing to lose they didn't cost me a penny I might pot them up now and let them develop a bit more and plant them in their final spot around the summer time. I rooted them in sand so a bit of goodness wont go astray in the springtime.

Thanks Very Happy

Next door neighbour's garden is VERY boggy in places. He wanted a laurel hedge and I suggested he plant them on a ridge of soil. That was 3 years ago. He now has a very healthy 6'+ laurel hedge! Very Happy
