Laurus nobilis or "Bay Tree"

Laurus Nobilis or "Bay Tree" - sweet bay trees are an essential plant in the chef’s garden. Those aromatic, dark evergreen leaves bring Mediterranean flavours in cooking, perking up the dullest of spag bol.

But tasty food isn’t all bay trees can bring a garden because they look lush and fresh too. Bay leaves are dark green bushy affairs all year round and in spring small, lemon-yellow flowers appear.

Laurus Nobilis will grow happily in a container or in the ground given the right conditions. It will grow naturally as a bushy shrub or hedge but if you prefer a formal look you can clip it into a shape. Lollipop structures are very popular for bay trees.

Try using a fresh leaf in your cooking compared to a dried leaf and experience the taste sensation.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I’m primarily grown for my sweet aromatic leaves.

  • I grow to: I can reach 7.5 metres in height and three metres wide given the right conditions.

  • Where to place me: I like full sun in a sheltered spot.

  • How far to space me:  Give me three metres of space if you’re growing a sweet smelling edible hedge.

  • Soil Conditions: I prefer well-drained soil. Soggy ones quickly will rot my roots

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature in size and have well developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door.
