Great source for hard to find plants

This is the second bay laurel I've bought from territorial seeds. The first was over 2 years ago and it's doing great!!! Got these one for my friend and it is also thriving! Very happy with the product. I'm in Northern IL and just bring it in to overwinter....still going strong!

Bay Laurel.

Last year, I bought two bay laurels, one for me and one for daughter-in-law. They were nice looking and took to their new homes well. But I was out of town in Nov.. and wasn't home to bring the plant in for the first freeze. I reordered one to be delivered this spring. It was wet and chilly here, so I put it with my plant starts under the lights. It grew like mad! I've been so pleased with my live plants.

Bay laurel

Have tried and failed twice before. This is the healthiest start that I have received. Have high hopes for success this time.
