Bay Laurel
Laurus nobilis
Uses: Culinary/Medicinal/Industrial Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 8-10)
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Moderate/Special Treatment Required
Like wine, thyme and leeks, bay leaf is a base flavour of French cuisine, and an essential ingredient in any bouquet garni. French meat, fish and poultry dishes rely on its spicy aromatic character. Bay laurel is an evergreen tree with glossy, deep-green, crinkled leaves that stem from smooth reddish woody branches. Bay laurel is frost-sensitive, and should be overwintered indoors. Thrives in containers, where it should be pruned, and may be trained to take on several growth forms. Seed viability is limited, so sow fresh seeds promptly and do not let them dry out too much. Leaves should be picked young, dried in the shade, and can then be kept in dry-storage for up to one year. Ht up to 18ft (5m).
