Calendula officinalis 'Indian Prince' English marigold

Posted: 02 December 2011
Overall: Last summer i brought a not very established bay tree it sits potted nicely by my front door it is positioned well and gets plenty of natural light but with the recent harsh weather it is looking rather weather stricken and quite a few of the leaves are going a rusty brown colour dispite me feeding and watering the bay tree im baffled by this as bay trees are hardy.I would appreciate any feed back on what may be the problem?
