Prunus laurocerasus 'Novita' Tree

Evergreen Cherry Laurel Trees

from From £229.99 (ex. VAT)
( £275.99 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

Prunus laurocerasus 'Novita' looks grand with its large, glossy foliage that stays put all year round. The glorious evergreen leaves are supplemented by scented white flowers that appear in spring. Later on, inedible, dark fruits appear.

This is a particularly hardy evergreen laurel which makes a good hedging or screening plant, although the mature options we offer make a majestic specimen tree. Prunus laurocerasus 'Novita' is a vigorous tree, happiest in full sun or partial shade, but it can tolerate shade. Ideal for most soils except chalky.

Delivery Timescales

Most deliveries are made within a week of placing the order. Many are despatched within 24 hours of receiving the order, but please allow up to 10 working days to be on the safe side. There is a slightly longer timescale on pleached trees or trees over 2.5m in height (all trees called Standard, Premium Standard, Heavy Standard, Extra Heavy Standard, Mature Trees or Pleached) because we have to group orders together into geographic areas for a specialist haulage contractor to deliver. All trees are packed very carefully by our experienced team and delivered using couriers who've been tried and tested over many years.

Gift trees and other trees required for arrival on a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure at no extra charge. Although it is rarely a problem, we do have to say that we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

The vast majority of trees are sent on a 'no signature required' basis, so there's no need to be in to receive your order. You can give us instructions on where to leave your delivery either via the checkout or send us a separate email. For some mature or pleached trees we may contact you in advance if the delivery driver needs help getting the tree/trees off the vehicle.

Our nursery is a busy despatch centre and therefore customers need to make an appointment to collect or view trees.  For collections, despatch charges will be refunded.

Delivery Costs

1 small tree (most trees with a height under 1.5 metres) : £7.95 + vat

1 medium tree (most trees with a height of 1.5-2 metres) or 2-4 small trees: £9.95 + vat

Northern Ireland, Channel Islands, Non Mainland UK and Overseas Destinations

Our courier charges are not viable for just one or two trees, but if you have a larger requirement then please do speak to us and we'll see if we can find a solution.

Planting Advice for Prunus laurocerasus 'Novita' Trees

'Novita' is evergreen and can be planted at any time of year.

Remove weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole then dig a hole slightly deeper than your root mass and approximately 2x as wide.To help your tree establish more effectively, we advise applying root grow. Gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole. Using 50% of the original soil and 50% compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Make sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree as this can cause problems. We recommend planting trees using a stake and tie kit.
