Double Spiral Stem Bay (Laurus Nobilis)


Double Spiral Stem Bay (Laurus Nobilis)



Bay can be grown in a number of ways. It thrives in containers, especially if watered regularly and positioned in a sheltered spot. In the garden, bay trees grow as a large bushy shrub or small tree, reaching a height of 7.5m (23ft) or more. Bay can also be turned into topiary (trees or shrubs cut or trained into specified shapes) specimens which can be shaped into pyramid, ball or “lollipop” standards, and some have ornately plaited or spirally trained stems.

Beautifully clipped to shape! The Bay Tree gives an astonishing, topiary styled approach to your contemporary or formal garden or front door.
