Really happy with this bay plant. Wanted one that was a bit different from the usual. Arrived healthy and well-packaged - just a pinch tall for its box but doesn't seem to have suffered.

Some Herbs may be too tall for our standard packaging and will be trimmed to fit. This will not be detrimental to the plant but will mean that these herbs will flower later in the year.
The Blister packs used to protect our beautiful herbs during transit are made from 100% recycled plastic and can be recycled kerbside.
Narrow-Leaved Bay Tree (Laurus nobilis f.angustifolia) Herb in 1 Litre Pot
This is a narrow-leaved version of typical Bay it is also know as Willow Leaved Bay. Like typical Bay it is also native to the Mediterranean region, and an aromatic evergreen tree or large shrub with green, glossy leaves, but narrower than a typical Bay . 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, depending on growing conditions it could reach a height of 8m 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.
The leaves of the Laurus nobilis f.angustifolia 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.
