frost damage

tom d asked 11 years ago

I was up to recently going to set some gold leylandii but have heard that it too got damaged by frost last winter! which is more frost hardy, laurel or gold leylandii? is it true you have to prune rather that use a hedgeg trimmers for laurel. how far apart would you set both?

Laurel is a better choice anyway as it is easier to control and can be cut back hard if needs be. It is hardier and a hedgecutter can be used. Plant at 60cm apart
