July Tree of the Month 2019
Double Stem Corkscrew Bay Tree Gift
Our chosen July Tree of the Month is both stylish and useful… but with a bit of a twist. Our Double Stem Corkscrew Bay Tree is truly one of a kind. It’s both fragrant and chic emitting a contemporary style into the garden.
The leaves are glossy, green and aromatic, especially over the summer and throughout July. Its stem is intricate and unlike anything else we have to offer making it a truly unique and long lasting gift.
Tree of the Month of July
The double corkscrew bay is utterly beautiful. The intricate double helix shape of the stem is created by hand twisting 2 bay trees around one another. The head of fragrant leaves sits atop the corkscrew looking glossy, green and gorgeous and as it’s an evergreen variety it looks fabulous for the whole year.
The leaves on the Laurus nobilis are the most fragrant throughout the summer and July is the perfect time for picking and drying them for later use. The best time to harvest them is in the morning just after all the dew has evaporated from the night before.
We find that our double twisted bay tree is extremely popular to send for summer weddings in July. The two intertwined stems, a representation of togetherness and partnership. Symbolic of two beings coming together in love and in life. Plus, as unique wedding gifts go, we know that this tree will be cherished by the couple for many years to come reminding them of their special day.
Bay trees are slow growing and easy to look after and considering that they are originally from Mediterranean shores, they do rather well against the colder UK winters with an extra bit of protection. This is great news for any novice gardeners. Check out our Bay Tree Care Guide and you’ll see just how easy it is!
