About:

This exciting addition to The Patio Orchard Collection is widely used in cooking - bay leaves will transform bland recipes by infusing flavour into poultry and fish dishes, hearty stews and soups, plus sauces and marinades - amazing! Whether placed in a pot outside your kitchen window or planted in the yard, enjoy the convenience of having a Bay Leaf tree at the ready and ensure your next family meal is a flavoursome delight. Low maintenance and suitable for most climates, seek the Bay Leaf tree within the Patio Orchard Collection at all
good garden centres.

Growing:

In a pot the bay leaf will grow to around 1.5m, but if planted in the yard the tree will grow to a full size of 12m. For convenience, grow in a pot and prune in spring for desired size. Prefers full sun and thrives in most climates, with little to no frost tolerance.

Water:

Plants in a pot will require regular watering. Water only when dry.

Soil:

Must be planted in well drained soil and is suitable for a range of soil types, as long as they are rich in organic matter.

Maintenance:

Very low maintenance. Prune each spring. For best results allow time between picking and
consuming the leaves so they can develop their full taste.
