Hard pruning works for laurel

The laurel hedge at North Moreton was pruned in mid June, just before the RHS exams, and was given a pretty hard cut to make up for earlier over-hesitancy by students who were worried about cutting too much off... In a month it has gone from very bare stems to a mass of healthy new leaves, proving that you can keep laurel hedges well under control with hard pruning where you need to.
