QTY:
Laurus nobilis bay tree is native to the Mediterranean region, Bay is a shrubby outdoor evergreen with dark glossy leaves that are widely used as a culinary herb to flavor soups, stews, braises and pates. It is a shrubby evergreen with aromatic foliage which can be used for culinary purposes. 

It produces small yellow flowers in the sping that are followed by shiny purple berry-like fruits. It is can be kept both indoors or outdoors but does prefer partial shade. Ensure the soil remain moist but well drained.

These are outdoor trees and if grown in a protected area they can withstand a few degrees of frost making them a fairly hardy tree. The important thing to remember is to keep then out of harsh winds (both warm in the summer and cold in the winter). The Bay Tree doesn’t like water logged roots so ensure they are planted in well drained soil. 

Do not bring your Bay tree indoors as the heat will almost certainly damage it. You can, however, place it in a greenhouse if the weather is extremely cold, or positioned against a wall. 

Best time for pruning is in the spring through to mid summer. If there are damaged leaves you can cut back to a healthy bud.

Please Note: The picture is for guidance only. It is not generally possible to send the tree in the picture. We may need to send you one that's similar in terms of size, shape, pot and age. The appearance of the tree may vary depending on the season.

General Care of Outdoor Bonsai

In many ways outdoor Bonsai can be easier to look after than indoor species. However, here are some general instructions.

Location
All Bonsai need sunlight some will thrive given direct sunlight and other will tolerate some shade (check each species for more information).
Protect the tree during prolonged cold periods. Either in a shed or unheated greenhouse.

Watering
Watering is the key to keeping the bonsai alive. In dry spells water your bonsai regularly ensuring that soil is damp but not soggy wet

Pruning Shoots 
Prune new growth regularly to maintain the shape of the bonsai.
If you don't prune often the tree will lose its shape and become straggly.
Prune when new shoots grow which is normally in Spring and Summer.


Pruning Roots or Re-potting
Re-pot or root prune only when the tree gets pot bound,
Usually every two or three years.
Spring is the best time for doing this.
Prune enough roots off to make space for new soil.


Feeding
Feed once a month during the growing season usually Spring- Summer.
Use liquid or pellet fertiliser (always read the label for instructions)
