Download Publication (PDF)

The guide has been written by Andy Whelton, Brian McGuinness and Helen Grogan, all from Teagasc, Horticulture Development Department and Jan-Robert Baars, School of Biology and Environmental Sciences, University College Dublin.

The guide comes after the culmination of a program of research under a DAFM stimulus funded project ‘New Leaves’. It aimed to address some of the plant health issues of the cut foliage sector. And while the focus was on laurel for cut foliage, the results have relevance for anyone involved in container and hedge production of the species.
