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
