How Do I Prune an English Laurel?

Answer

Use electric hedge trimmers to prune English Laurel. Hold the electric trimmer blades vertically at the bottom of one side of the shrub and move the trimmers slowly upward along the side of the cherry laurel, angling them in slightly at the upper section of the shrub. The angle cut should be subtle to give the cherry laurel a polished look.
