Bay plant

Posted: 15/12/2016 at 13:18

Is there more than one type of Bay plant? I know my plant is a Bay, but I'm afraid to use it in my cooking just in case there is more than one type and one isn't for culinary use. I bought it quite a few years ago at the market in Ludlow. Thanks

Blueberries

Ditto sallya42. My two bluberry plants have fared miserably this year. They are different strains cropping at different times, both in large tubs. The early cropper is Eary Blue but I don't know the name of the other. Last year was a bumper crop on both. I pruned them in spring making sure I left on the previous year's growth because I think that's where the next year's berries are formed. But this year hardly any flowers on the early cropper and none at all on the later one although there has been plenty of growth branch wise. I put bracken around the top of the soil in winter and they are in a sheltered position. They are in ericacious compost. I renew the top layer each year. Only water with rainwater. Two things are different this year. We made a mesh construction to surround them, because the blackbirds enjoyed a lot of them last year, and there is a large pot of Briza in between them.

Any advice would be very welcome.
