Bay tree likes Full sun or partial shade.
Water regularly but sparingly during growing season. Do not overwater. Water less during winter, only make sure the root ball does not dry out.
Hardiness: Fully hardy but protect from cold drying winds and hard frost (below -5°C). Mature Bay trees can withstand lower temperatures but frost damage may occur. Remove brown and withered leaves from frost damaged trees in spring and they normally recover quickly with new growth.
Prune into shape in spring/summer. Any necessary hard pruning in spring and only light pruning in summer. Well suited to be clipped into topiary shapes such as Bay standards or Bay cones.
Soil: Well-drained. Fertile. Repot every two to three years. Bay trees have a shallow root system so make sure they are protected from frost and heat by top dressing with soil.
During growing season top dress sparingly with organic fertiliser or with slow release fertiliser granules. There is no need for plant feed during the winter period. Avoid high concentration of fast acting liquid fertiliser.
