I have two Portugese laurels growing in cruddy clay, rural just south of Silverdale, and after at least seven years, they have yet to flower. Why?

Hi Donna, Portugese Laurel are grown for their vegetative growth not really for flowers, if you are using it as a hedge or Topiary you are most likely pruning just after the flowers are initiated (i.e. you are pruning off the flowers). They are quite small flowers is there a chance you might have missed the flowers? Thanks the Palmers Team

The Laurel Nobilus (Bay Tree) has small flowers, but I have seen the Portugese Laurel in flower in both Rotorua and Gold Flats Rd, Coatesville, and flowers were much larger and more prolific and showy – hence the question, why not mine?

Hi Donna, I am assuming you are not trimming the Portugese Laurel? then the only other possibility I can think of that it was grown from seed and is sterile so will never flower. Considering the time frame even you feed it with a Nitrogen fertiliser only (which encourages new growth) it should have flowered at some stage. Thanks the Palmers Team
