Can you get a Bay Plant?

Posted: 22/11/2013 at 13:36

If you have an existing bay or  a neighbour with a bay, they are easy to take cuttings from.. If you just cut a length of stem, take off all the lower leaves, and put it in a pot and forget about it till next year, you'll find it's rooted! Anyway I have a high success rate (6 out of 7) rooted.  I overwinter them in a greenhouse (I am in Aberdeen) and within a couple of years you have a bush - and you train the cutting for what you want - I now have 2 nice standards - by letting a leader grow and rubbing out other leaves - cheap, good fun!
