There are really only a couple things you need to know in order to properly take a cutting from a shrub. Do it in the spring when the plant is in bud. Use sharp pruning shears. Let the Laurel cuttings grow there until the Fall (if they are really putting on growth) or until the following Spring.
Tip. Winter is the best time to take cuttings of laurels. The plant is dormant and the rooting process should be complete by time the warm spring weather sets in.
Stick cuttings into the soil so the top third is exposed, and put the whole flat into a large, clear plastic bag with the end closed loosely. Keep the rooting medium slightly moist, but don’t let water stand in the drip tray under the pots, or the cuttings will drown and rot.
One of the most popular choices for privacy hedging, the cherry laurel is extremely fast growing. Also known as common laurel, this evergreen species thrives in shadier conditions as well as in direct sunlight. Growth wise, you can expect about 60cm per year in average conditions.
