At around 4-5ft high and with its definitive dark green ‘lollipop’ head, the half-standard Bay Tree –Laurus nobilis –adds a wonderful symmetrical formality to any garden design, particularly when placed either side of a front door. This half-standard Bay Tree is not only a culinary variety but arrives with 2 FREE pewter-effect Planters worth £19.90!
Bay Trees thrive in containers and are so easy to look after – just clip the leaves into shape during summer and give an occasional liquid feed. As well as being a favourite for topiary, Bay leaves are widely used fresh or dried as a culinary herb … all of which makes this Mediterranean favourite a prime contender for a sunny spot in your garden!
Head size on arrival is approx 30cm diameter
Bays trees have been clipped for the winter and due to the nature of the product and the transit process, the products may not be identical. During the Spring and Summer the trees will produce new leaf growth which can be pruned into the desired shape.
As the bay trees are intended for onwards planting into containers, adjustments can be made when potting up to match the heights of the trees.
