yes, it's true
Ditto parsley,sage, rosemary and thyme.
Wasn't there a song
I wouldn't have though of that one Kitty but not long ago someone posted here and they had got their bays and laurels confused. As you say, there is a resemblance between the Portugal Laurel, (which I call Prunus lusitanicus so I won't be confused) and Laurus nobilis (which I call bay when I need a jar of leaves from the SM).
I have a huge bay bush and I buy dried bay leaves
If it is bay, Laurus nobilis, it will make no difference which cultivar it is.
A confusion of names exists between
Laurus noblis, aka bay is also known as Bay Laurel
Prunus laurocerasus, known as laurel, is poisonous
Nor mine it seems
Do you think fortuneii or japonicus, Posy?
I used to sow them late summer autumn and then had babies to deal with all winter.
Carrie Thomas, Touchwood, suggested sowing in a cold GH in January when I ordered seed. This has worked well for me since then.
they don't look like daphne stems or leaves to me. They look like euonymus, though I might be wrong with the fortuneii, could be a E. japonicus
Maejima has its variegation at the edge as does aureomarginata, this has it as a splurge down the middle
An in focus look at one of the berries would tell for sure but they look like spindle berries to me
It's a Euonymus fortuneii cultivar.
you may need to reduce the size of the image as well, I reduce mine to 30%
I need to do some transplanting, plants always seem to germinate right at the edge between garden and path
