Bay Laurel

It seems happy growing in a large pot for now.

growing well

These were in good shape when I got them. After a month in a shady spot they are now in full sun and growing fast here in central WA.

Excellent plants

I have been ordering tiny bay trees from different sources for several years trying to replace the one I lost from stress when we moved cross country. All of them died within days. A large percentage arrived covered in scale. But, I decided to try again. The two bays I got from Territorial Seed were absolutely beautiful! Small but healthy and, best of all, no scale. I repotted them into their new homes and they have been happily growing. I can't wait for them to get large enough to use in cooking. Fresh is ever so much better than the bay leaves you get in the store. I can't thank you enough for the quality of these plants!

Growing nicely despite my black thumb

I ordered a bay laurel from Territorial 2 years ago. It's thriving in a pot on my deck with johnny jump ups growing at it's base. It's nice to be able to pluck a fresh leaf for cooking instead of using dried leaves that I bought who-knows-when. And it's a pretty plant!

Our plants are available individually in 2 1/4 inch pots! At Territorial you don't have to buy 6 plants of each variety. You can mix and match your plants just the way you want.

When you order our transplants, you will receive the same quality and selection that our customers have learned to expect at our retail store. For gardeners who are pressed for time or prefer to have Territorial start their plants, our selection of vegetables, flowers, and herbs is an easy and economical way to fill your garden with summer goodness. Plants are available individually. For the best shipping value, order any combination of 6 plants.
