This is the sweet bay tree - Laurus nobilis, which not only looks stunning, but tastes delicious when added to dishes.
Current Description
The standard bay trees are looking fantastic again this week. They have a bushy head of glossy foliage grown into the classic lollipop shape. One or a pair of these would make a very elegant statement on a patio or by the front door - a perfect housewarming gift.

This was bought as a gift. I wasn’t disappointed and the recipient was pleased. A good sized tree with plenty of foliage and well packaged. Very fast delivery. Wish I’d had better choices for ‘free’ container ie. it would have been nice to be able to get the one in the picture.

Care Instrictions

These instructions are sent with the plant gift

This is the sweet bay tree - Laurus nobilis - it is normally grown outside, but young trees are quite happy indoors in winter and are very easy to care for.

If inside make sure the plant gets plenty of daylight, by putting it near a window. A cool room or a light porch is best, and it will be happiest away from any radiators.

When in a small pot, young bays will need some watering, especially if your room is centrally heated.

Repot your bay tree when it starts to get too big for its existing pot. If you have a garden, a patio or a window box then your bay will appreciate spending the summer outside. When it grows older this bay can be planted out and can grow into quite a sizeable tree. Larger trees look great clipped into a ball or pyramid. New shoots are a different colour - 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.

Problem Solving: Bay trees are very tough trees that require little maintenance. Crisp or brown leaves are the result of underwatering, give your plant a good soak and it will start to recover.

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.

Bay Tree

Scientific Name:Laurus Nobilis

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

Small white flowers in spring

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.
