DESCRIPTION

Bay leaves are best known for their use in cooking and have a unique and fragrant flavour that compliments most stews and casseroles. The Bay Leaves from our superb Small Bay Trees are excellent in Asian and Mediterranean cooking and would make a perfect gift for a foodie.

The Bay Laurel is a small tree native to the shores of the Mediterranean but has been cultivated in Britain since the 16th century. It can be grown indoors in a pot, or outside on the patio and is the perfect gift for food lovers! Our potted Bay Laurel looks great on either side of the door, so why not buy two small bay trees for a stunning look!

The Bay Laurel Tree is said to have both healing and protective properties, and it is thought that a Bay Tree growing near or in your garden will protect the house and ward off illness. When a new baby arrives it is lucky to celebrate by planting a Bay Tree.

Bay trees will need protection during the winter months as strong, cold winds and frost can be damaging.
