In ancient mythology the Bay is a sacred tree which symbolises courage and strength. It also protects the dwelling by which it grows.
This beautifully gift wrapped Bay tree has glossy, evergreen leaves all year. Its pale yellow flowers, which blossom in spring, are loved by our bees and butterflies. The Bay tree has been treasured for centuries for its aromatic leaves which add a delicious flavour to soups and stews. This dense foliage is also wonderful for our garden birds to safely make their nests. The Bay tree will happily thrive in any garden, balcony or cool conservatory and can be clipped into a formal shape using topiary.
When you place your order a beautiful tree will be freshly selected by our devoted gardeners here, before being carefully wrapped in organza and placed in a luxury parcel.
An exclusively designed card with your personal message, the story of the Bay tree's ancient symbolism and a full care guide is also enclosed with your gift. You can add an engraved brass plaque (see images) inscribed with your message so this special gift is always remembered.
Caring for your tree
Every Bay tree is growing in its organic pot filled with top-notch compost, so no green fingers are required, just natural daylight and water. We have added special nutrients to your tree’s compost to create the perfect balance of nourishment. These little beads of goodness will release into the soil for the next 9 months to ensure your tree continues to flourish.
In a few weeks, plant your tree, still in its organic pot so the roots are not disturbed, in a large outdoor flower pot (one with holes so excess water can drain away) or plant in a sunny spot in the garden.
This Bay tree is 40-50cm high and growing in a 15cm pot. It will enjoy being pruned in early spring and may reach a height of 2 metres in 10 years, if allowed to grow naturally.
Your parcel travels in a clear eco bag so the couriers and recipients are aware a living tree is inside it and must be opened as soon as possible.
