I assume we're talking Prunus laurocerasus?

It makes a nice big shiny bush. I think you need to tip the ends of the branches in  youth to get it to thicken up. I have some that I just let grow and they were fine for a good 15 years then got very see-through. They are  big shrubs if you don't trim them, roadside electric wire height and still growing.

I like Portugal laurel, Prunus lusitanicus,  it's a nice dark green and less inclined to get bits of die back. Again tall if not clipped

I've never seen an earthstar either. Plenty of photos but hadn't realised they were as big as that.

I've written labels for the seeds I'm going to sow as soon as I've had another cup of coffee, GH warming up nicely and hopefully compost is thawing

Has anyone got a trail cam for night time critter visits?
