CHURCHILL, VIC, Australia
Fantastic fresh leaves - sooo much better than dried store bought!Dwarf variety, looks beautiful and releases amazing scent whenever you brush past it.
BROWN HILL, VIC, Australia
This is a dwarf Bay tree should only grow to 2m if that so i thought i'd plant it in my little herb garden, it gets hot afternoon sun and loves it.
FERNTREE GULLY, VIC, Australia
Bought this 5years ago as a seedling from bunnings. It's planted in a large tub and doing extremely well. Pruned it hard 2 years ago to shape. I seasoled a month ago.
Burnside, VIC, Australia
2011: It is perfect to put into sauces. It has a lovely scent and the plant is hardy. Update: I notice that my plant is very slow to grow. It only grown a couple of centimeters since last year. It is still a strong plant with no pest attacking it.2012...

Like the fresh taste
This bay is the Laurus nobilis. It loves full sun, even through the heat waves. It's a great, low maintenance tree, and can be pruned to desired shape.
Virginia, Qld, Australia
It gives me great satisfaction when a recipe says to add one or two bay leaves and I just have to go outside and pull them from my tree!
South Plympton, SA, Australia
Tree was rather poorly when got. Suffered some heat/lack of water damage. Slowly being turned into a standard.
West Leederville, WA, Australia
Initially a house mascot after it was discovered on a Bunning's throw-out table and used as a Christmas Tree we were all surprised that the plant survived. It is now in the ground and seems to be establishing itself in the poor WA soil. I provide it wi...

Bellbird Park, QLD, Australia
Think the drought and the fact that it was outside the property so I could not keep a close eye on it
Can someone tell me how long it takes to grow

Works just as well: Myrtlewood leaves. If you don't live in the S. OR coast and N. CA areas, it may be very hard to get. It's EVERYWHERE here, though. Also a good (and safe!) bug repelent for people and pets.
If you want a drought tolerent tree this is it.Ours was to the point of dead looking trunks and leaves and, with the root ball shrunk away from the pot. I nearly threw it in the compost. However, with some water it came back, unbelievable!
Or you can let it go wild. Mine started out as 2 leaves in a tube and is now bigger than my house. Bouquets garni anyone?
