Bay Tree (laurus nobilis). Slow growing evergreen small tree 9-15 metres. Warm position in sun or partial shade. Dark aromatic leaves, tree can be pruned to shape and size. Dried leaves added to spaghetti, soups and stews. Will happily grow in a large tub.

4 Nov 2001: I planted this small bay tree at the end of the middle bed in the vegie garden today. I’m planning to keep it pruned so it doesn’t grow much more than about 2 metres tall. Hopefully it won’t take over the garden.
