Laurus Nobilis Standard Bay Tree — 10 Comments

  1. I would so love to have this in my garden but that is truly day dreaming on my part .. we are in a ice storm warning at the moment as I listen to said ice pellets hitting the windows .. this is very bad and it could be the remake of Ice Storm 1998 which was horrendous.
    But I digress .. Alistair this is a gorgeous standard and to have fresh bay leaves on hand ? now that is perfection from the garden indeed ! You are a very lucky fellow gardener !
    Joy : )
    PS .. I have to move my Pink Diamond hydrangea standard and I am worried .. fingers crossed.

    • Hello Joy, Ice storms do indeed sound horrendous, you certainly would not want to be caught outdoors in one. Good luck with your Hydrangea, can’t recall seeing a standard.

  2. I love the smell of sweet bay. My daughter has a hedge in her New Jersey garden — a little warmer there than here. I’m not sure if it would survive a Pocono Mountain winter. I love your idea of placing the trees either side of the front door.

    • Hi Pam, when we first arrived here in Fife I spotted a couple of these Bay trees in a neighbouring garden. I spoke to the homeowners as to how I was surprised at seeing Bay, she said it had been in her garden for a number of years. Aberdeen 100 miles further North, in spite of being coastal, Bay would not be likely to survive.

  3. Hello, Alistair!
    You’re undoubtedly successful gardener, because Laurus nobilis is a tender tree. I liked how it looks near your fence, has many new growths. It’s a pity that we here have less than – 5 C in winter, I’d love to have this tree as well.
    Have a nice week!

  4. Hello Alistair, we have two bay shrubs that we bought at the same time, we planted one and it’s now far larger than the one we have in a pot. We do have some wind scorch on our bay but nothing like what Monty experienced, ours are still essentially all green. I’m not sure what our minimum temperature was but I’m sure it wasn’t as bad as -15C, we are much further south that you and Monty.
