Bay Tree is an evergreen tree or large shrub with glossy, dark green, aromatic leaves. The leaves are used in many dishes, both fresh and dry. During early summer masses of tiny flowers are produced which are much loved by bees and other pollinators. Will respond very well to pruning, producing lovely dense foliage. Immediately reminiscent of the Mediterranean and very under-rated as a high quality hedging plant.
