Bay Laurel is most known for its dark green, glossy leaves with a spicy, pungent flavor. Plant your Bay Laurel, Laurus nobilis, in an attractive tub or container plant for the patio. This herb performs best in fertile soil kept moderately moist. Use Bay Laurel for seasoning, garnish and for pickling mixtures. Its leaves have the strongest flavor when dried.

Please Note: Beginning in September, many plants begin to go dormant.

Some plants may have already dropped their leaves, died back to the ground or are beginning to turn yellow when they arrive to you. Deciduous trees, shrubs, perennials and groundcovers do go dormant.

This is a normal stage for plants at this time of the year. Plant upon arrival as roots continue to grow while the ground is warm. Some plants require seasonal maintenance and may have been pruned.
