Bay Tree
Botanical Name: Laurus nobilis

Bay trees are large evergreen shrubs or small tress which will grow between 5-10 metres depending on the climate. The aromatic leaves are dark green and shiny with slightly wavy margins. It has small creamy flowers which occur in small clusters. Pea sized black berries follow on female trees.

The Bay Tree originates from the Mediterranean region and was important in Greek mythology and history.

For Culinary use leaves can be used fresh or dried. Traditionally Bay Leaves were combined with other herbs such as thyme, parsley and marjoram as a bouquet garni. The herbs are tied together and added to soups, stews, sauces, and desserts. They are removed at end of cooking.

Bay leaves can also be used with fish, shellfish, pickles or flavoured vinegars.

Medicinally Bay Leaf is used as a digestive tonic for complaints such as indigestion and flatulence.

Growing Conditions

Bay trees will grow in full sun or part shade and prefer a well drained soil but will adapt to a wide range of soils. In colder climates they may need protections from frosts. Bay Trees are slow growing to begin with but when larger thrive on regular pruning and can be shaped to standards or made into hedge. Suckers will need to be removed regularly from base of standards. Scale insects can be a problem but it is easily controlled with the use of eco-oil or whiteoil.
