The play tree arrived in excellent condition and well packaged. It is for a gift. Plant looks very healthy and was decorated for Christmas. It is still in excellent condition and looks great.

It's a sweet little bay tree, perfect for my parents who aren't up to putting up a Christmas tree this year. They were very happy with it. It was healthy and prettily decorated.

This is the sweet bay tree Laurus nobilis which produces savoury leaves for cooking. Bay leaves add a wonderful savoury flavour to soups, stews and meat dishes – put the washed leaves in the dish whole but remove before serving.

Long term these bay trees are best grown outside, young plants are happy indoors for a few weeks but do need to be kept in a bright, cool room away from any heating source.

When looking for a spot outside for your new bay, make sure your plant gets plenty of daylight, you can keep them in a pot or plant out in the ground, they do well in most soils and hardy in all but the coldest of UK winters. If especially cold your plant will benefit in being covered in fleece for short periods or moved to a sheltered location.

Bay trees are quite slow growing but if allowed, will grow to full size trees in about 30 years. To encourage healthy growth, repot your bay tree about once a year in the spring time. To keep their shape, you may also want to give them a haircut at the beginning and end of the growing season.

Problem Solving:

Problem solving:

Bay trees are very tough trees that require little maintenance.

In the spring and summer your plant should begin to put on new leaves, don’t worry if they are a lighter colour than the existing leaves, they will colour up over a few weeks.

New shoots are more tender than established branches and may droop if exposed to hot or cold temperatures, ensure they are fully watered and try to keep in a frost-free temperature until the young leaves have matured and changed colour.

Crisp or brown leaves are the result of under watering, give your plant a good soak and it will start to recover.

Bay Tree

Scientific Name:Laurus Nobilis

Sometimes also known as the "bay leaf tree" for obvious reasons.

Young bay trees will be happy inside on a kitchen window sill but once they grow larger they will look great on a patio or planted into the garden. Bay trees are traditional topiary trees and can be clipped and shaped into a great variety of shapes.
