Interesting thread - my recently planted laurels have gone mad too which I am delighted about as they will hopefully provide me with a bit of privacy in the next few years if they keep growing at this rate!
Wintersong - can I ask how did you train as standards? Do you continue to remove the branches lower down or wait until it has reached a certain size? Mine are currently about 7 feet tall and bushing out madly but as I have a small garden am more interested in them gaining in height than in width. Sorry for hijack btw OP I maybe should have started new thread!
