you have Prunus laurocerasus, don't eat it

I like them, this one is less invasive than poscharskyana (here at least)

I grow them on the edge of steps and a little wall. I don't think either like too hot and dry

Tin Pot's plant is Prunus laurocerasus, Laurel, sometimes called Bay-laurell, Not to be confused with Warren's Laurus nobilis and definitely not to be added to stews
