I have a little bay tree in a pot. It's been there around three months or so, and is around a foot tall. It has been putting on new growth, with large pale green leaves. Just today, those leaves started to curl. It was a very hot day, but the plant was well watered.
Any suggestions as to what might have caused that, and how it can be fixed?
No sign of any insects.
A photo would help.
It's getting dark now. I'll post one tomorrow.
Thanks, and sorry for the delay. I'm attaching a couple of snaps here. Actually, the curl has much reduced over the last couple of days. Buddyboy, I thought they liked it pretty damp? I was wondering if it was the heat, as their straightening out after a day or three that has been much cooler.
I'll maybe ease back on the watering a bit too then.
Bay trees need well-drained soil and hate soggy roots - over-watering can cause problems. Let it dry out a bit.
