About Bay Tree – Stem & Ball
The Bay Tree has been grown, nurtured and loved for centuries; for both ornamental and cooking purposes. Heralded as a status symbol by the ancient Greeks and Romans, often used as crowns when made into wreaths. So, why not add a touch of Mediterranean opulence to your outdoor space with this charming outdoor tree.
The Bay Laurel Tree is commonly used as a pair at the doorstep of people’s homes, to create a welcoming entrance and it also works just as well on a balcony, patio or decking space. The Bay Tree has fragrant leaves which can welcome guests to your home with a wonderful smell.
On the whole, the Bay Laurel is a really easy-care outdoor tree, which can be kept either in a decorative pot or planted into the ground. It prefers a bright outdoor sunny space but can cope with partial shade. Ideally, keep sheltered from cold, harsh winds which dry the foliage. It enjoys gentle watering, so don’t go overboard with the watering can but also don’t let it dry out completely.
Able to cope with temperatures down to -5°C, the Bay Laurel should be happy in your UK garden year-round.
Bay Laurel’s leaves and berries can both be used in the kitchen. Pick fresh bay leaves from your garden to add fragrant aromatic flavours to your cooking which will be far better than any store-bought Bay Leaves.
