I would move them, some of mine have seeded into more or less compete shade and they are very poor compared to those in more open sites.
Portugal laurel, Prunus lusitanicus, might be better than either. Nice dark green, smaller leaves that looks much better trimmed that P. laurocerasus.
I gave mine a big haircut when it did the same thing. Down to 2 almost bare trunks. One regrew and one died back.
With hindsight, they're such quick shrubs I think I'd start again given the same situation
It's drying out they don't like. the timing is less critical
Sounds painful Hf,
I hope the crutches work in every way Have a good trip.
Maybe trip wasn't the best choice of word
I agree AWB, lawns suffer from people and dog infestations in winter.
Mine is a mess and I haven't even got the excuse of a dog
I don't think it's cow parsley either. I have a lot of that
I have some doubt Mark. Easy to check though, nothing smells like feverfew
I reckon a lot of cultivars are indistinguishable. The assorted winter flowering pink viburnums for one, (or 101)
missed that. What have you done HF?
a holiday on crutches? sounds a bad start
