  • Its common names include bay tree (esp. United Kingdom), 84 bay laurel, sweet bay, true laurel, Grecian laurel, or simply laurel.
  • Laurus nobilis figures prominently in classical Greco-Roman culture.
Plant Care

Light

  • If you grow your bay tree indoors, keep it near a sunny window for the winter.
  • Avoid exposure to both drafts and heat from appliances.
  • Outdoor plants require full sun to partial shade. In areas with hot, dry summers, some afternoon shade is ideal.

Soil

  • This tree is not too particular about soil.
  • Well-draining soil is important; plant your bay tree at the same depth as it was planted in its original pot.

Water

  • Bay roots are very shallow and frequent watering may be necessary during dry spells.
  • Use caution when weeding or cultivating around the base of the tree.
  • Water it regularly but always allow the soil to dry out between waterings, so the roots don’t rot.
  • Although your bay tree will probably go dormant and drop a few leaves, you do not want its soil to sit dry for extended periods.

Fertilizer

  • Since bay is slow growing, it doesn’t require a great deal of food.
  • Plants in containers need some supplemental fertilizer.
  • Feed container grown bay in the spring and maybe again mid-summer, with a balanced organic fertilizer like fish emulsion and kelp.
  • It also helps to refresh the top couple of inches of soil each spring, being careful not to hurt the shallow roots.
