Laurus Nobilis Bay Tree Pyramid 7.5 Litre 100cm. Charella Gardens supply only the highest quality bays trees. We source all our northern European trees from one very exclusive grower in the Flanders region of Belgium, this is the traditional growing area for this product. They are personally selected by ourselves, so you are guaranteed matching symmetrical trees with a good shape, whether it be our pyramids or our ball on stem varieties you are guaranteed a tree of the highest quality. By sourcing our trees from one grower you are guaranteed matching products regardless of shape or size.

What to expect: Your plant will arrive planted in a 7.5 litre pot it will have a minimum height inclusive of pot of 100-105cm, and it will look just like the pictures

Planting Position: Bay trees prefer to be planted in full sun, but will tolerate light shade, they are best planted in areas protected from strong winds and sharp frosts, however this is more for the winter months.

Soil: They are tolerant of a wide range of soils except heavy clay, if your soil has a large clay content this can be counter acted when planting by digging a large hole and mixing the soil with lots of compost and some sharp sand, this will almost certainly make the area more suitable.

Suitable for container planting: Yes ideal for container planting. If pot planting a multi purpose compost is suitable, or in an ideal scenario a John Innes number 2 is the absolute perfect choice it may also be advisable to add some stones at the base to create some drainage.

Winter Hardy: -5 but will tolerate lower temperatures if planted in the ground, it may be advisable to protect the foliage by wrapping in a winter fleece and wrapping the pot in bubble wrap to protect the roots, alternatively it could be moved into a garage or shed during the harshest months.

If pot planted your Bay Tree should be re potted every two years, even if you decide not to repot we would recommend replacing some of the old compost periodically with fresh John Innes number 2, also adding a controlled release fertiliser to the mix will help.

Pruning: Topiary trained Bay Trees are best trimmed using secateurs during the summer months, this encourages a dense habit and maintains the desired shape. Remove any leaf tips damaged by winter weather by lightly pruning in late spring. Foliage:oximately every two weeks during spring and summer

Eventual height and spread: Can if left uncared for grow up to 12 metres with a spread of 12 metres, but as most people have these trees in pots or as specimen topiary plants this is not an issue.

Growth speed: Relatively slow.

Flowering Period: Small yellow flowers are produced in Spring, followed by black berries on female plants.

Foliage:The glossy dark green leaves look superb and can of course be used in a wide range of recepies
