My bay plant was planted a few years ago in the garden and is now about 10 feet high and growing all the time.
I think accepted wisdom is that it is pruned in late spring. Can anyone confirm this? Also, is it ok to just cut off the main stem about three feet from the top, it seems cruel to do this and if I do, maybe the tree will start getting wider instead of taller, which I do not want.
Also, if the tree were to get higher i.e. 15feet and higher is this the kind of plant that would affect the structure of a building as it approximately 2 metres from the house.
