Laurus nobilis is an aromatic evergreen tree or large shrub with green, glabrous (smooth and hairless) leaves growing from 2 - 15 Mt tall. The bay tree is a very ornamental plant that is often cultivated for its use for seasoning in cooking.
Laurus Nobilis prefers a position in full sun but succeeds in light shade and even in fairly dense shade. It succeeds in any soil of moderate fertility, preferring a moisture retentive well-drained fertile soil. These plants are fairly wind hardy, but they do not like extreme maritime exposure or cold dry winds. They prefers moderate watering.
It is an ornamental plant that mainly used as topiary and hedging
Plants with thin leaves need daily watering and ones with thick leaves need watering 3-4 times a week. This will also depend on the season. Generally during the blooming period, plants love a lot of water. Try keeping the soil moist. During winters it is better to cut back on watering.
Keep the plants in a well drained soil with a drainage hole at the bottom. This will help to avoid over watering. Take care as to not leave stagnant water on top of the soil. Fertilise the plant once in 2-3 weeks during its blooming period. Do not fertilise it in winters.
