Bay Tree (Laurus nobilis) Herb in 1Litre Pot

Bay is known by a variety of common names: Sweet Bay, Bay Tree, True Laurel, Grecian Laurel, Laurel Tree, or simply Laurel. Bay is native to the Mediterranean region, and an aromatic evergreen tree or large shrub with green, glossy leaves, often with a wrinkled margin. Creamy-yellow flowers clusters appear in spring, followed by a pair of small green fruits on each leaf stalk.

Bay can vary greatly in size and height, sometimes reaching 10m tall, although they do take well to being clipped to shape, and will be very happy in a container if kept well fed. Preferring light, free-draining soil and a sunny sheltered position, Bay are frost hardy, with young plants needing protection in winter.

Herb Usage

The leaves of the Laurus nobilis are ideal for flavouring marinades, casseroles and stews, the leaves can be used fresh or can be dried. Although the plant is relatively slow growing, no herb garden is complete without a bay tree.

  1. Well packed, eager growth 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Apr 2020

    The plants were well packed to protect foliage and roots. Since being planted out on terrace, the leaves are green and healthy and the plant looks well.

  2. lovely healthy plant 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2019

    Despite being advertised at £3.99 in an e-mail it turned out that the price was actually £5.99. However even at the higher price the plant was certainly good value for money and is a very healthy specimen. We are very pleased with it
