    Shown above with optional gift wrap, which can be added during the checkout process. If not gift wrapped, plants will be supplied in simple nursery pots, suitable for potting into terracotta pots or wooden planters. Sold individually.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (needs winter protection)

    These evergreen bay laurel pyramids are ideal for punctuating a formal or contemporary planting scheme. Since the lustrous, aromatic, dark green leaves, valuable for culinary use, are susceptible to wind scorch provide a sheltered, sunny or partially shady site and winter protection in cold areas. The mature leaves may be used fresh or dried in bouquet garni, for flavouring stocks and sauces.

  • Garden care: Keep well-watered during the growing season and feed with a slow-release fertiliser. Clip established plants lightly twice during the summer months to retain a balanced shape, using secateurs not shears.

    Please note the height specified is the overall height of the plant on arrival including the pot.

Problem free


After the long, hot and dry Summer of 2018 I am convinced that this shrub is indestructible. We have four. Two were bought as standards and planted in the front garden in the sunny but very windy and exposed site and they are now, after five years, about 4m high trees. There is a little bit of wind scorch in Spring but we have them trimmed lightly after flowering and they recover with new growth.The other two were bought two years ago as small pyramids and were planted in the back garden in a West facing mixed shrub border and are already 3 metre tall narrow pyramids. In our experience they are as fast growing as Fatsia japonica and they look lovely planted next to them too. My neighbour keeps hers under control in a rather small pot on her patio and it looks equally gorgeous. We may have found an ideal plant to replace the box we lost.




Excellent specimen


Very healthy specimen and continues to grow well.
