Bay trees do not suffer weed competition well, so keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of the base of the tree. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the tree. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Water sweet bay trees well during dry periods particularly during the first 2 or 3 years whilst they are establishing.
Prune bay trees standards during summer, to encourage a dense habit and maintain a balanced shape. Lightly prune new shoots to just above a bud to create the desired shape. Any leaves which have been damaged by winter frosts should be trimmed in late spring.
Young bay trees will appreciate some winter protection from hard frosts. Container grown plants should be moved to a sheltered position or cold greenhouse. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes.
