Laurus nobilis (Bay tree)

Bay tree cuttings

Laurus nobilis is commonly known as the bay tree. The leaves are used extensively in cooking. Bay trees are evergreen, with deep dark green leaves that are quite aromatic. Throughout spring it produces tiny cream, star shaped flowers that are followed by black berries.

Bay tree makes a great hedge or privacy screen. It can also be grown in tubs or shaped into topiary. The leaves are often used in soups, bolognese, stews and casseroles.

Best results are achieved in moist well draining soils in a sunny position. Bay trees respond really well to regular pruning so don’t be scared to bust out the shears.

We propagate our stock from cuttings. They are then grown out for sale at our wholesale nursery located in Drouin, West Gippsland. We commonly sell them in 140mm pots although from time to time have them available in 200mm and 300mm pots.
