Bay or 'Laurus Nobilis' is a popular shrub with dark green, narrowly ovate leaves. You can clip the foliage to produce some impressive formal topiary shapes adding grandeur and interest to your garden.
The healthy bay leaves are wonderfully aromatic. Not only can you enjoy the fantastic smell in your garden but you can also use the foliage to add brilliant flavour to cooking as they have been cultivated for centuries as a herb to be used in the kitchen.
Hardy and reliable bay trees are easy to care for and maintain. They will thrive when placed in both the full sun and partial shade on either an exposed or sheltered site. Evergreen, fragrant and compact, Laurus Nobilis is well suited as an ornamental feature and would look brilliant placed on a patio or by an entrance.
