Description

Bay Laurel is a handsome, upright, evergreen tree or shrub with aromatic, leathery leaves, which can be used in cooking. It is easy to grow and maintain, and although Laurus nobilis can ultimately grow quite large, they can be clipped into various forms of topiary and hedging.

The evergreen foliage is glossy, and makes an elegant addition to borders, herb gardens or patio containers. Each spring, Bay trees are smothered with clusters of pale yellow flowers which are highly attractive to bees. Laurus nobilis also holds an RHS Award of Garden Merit. Height: up to 12m (40'). Spread: 10m (30').

Culinary Herb note: Some parts of these plants are edible and can be used as herbs to add flavour and colour to your meals. For more details about edible flowers click here.

How to Grow
Plant Bay Laurel trees in the ground in any fertile, well drained soil in a sheltered position in sun or semi-shade. Bay trees can also be grown in large containers of soil based compost such as John Innes.
More Info
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. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes.
