Kitchen Bay (Laurus nobilis)

Kitchen Bay – Laurus nobilis

Kitchen Bay – Laurus nobilis is a well-known, culinary, semi-hardy shrub that can grow to 20’ if conditions are suitable. It is not fussy over soil types but it would be advisable to plant away from biting winds as the new seasons growth is easily damaged in a cold winter. Alternatively, the bay is often seen growing as a specimen container plant, in which case it can be brought into a porch or conservatory during a cold spell. Bays will tolerate extensive pruning and can be trained into standards or cones.
