    These evergreen bay laurel pyramids are ideal for punctuating a formal or contemporary planting scheme.

    Supplied in a nursery pot, they are ideal for potting into a terracotta pot or wooden planter to stand on the patio or beside the door.

  • Garden care: Keep well-watered during the growing season and feed with a slow-release fertiliser such as Scotts Controlled Release Tablets. Clip established plants lightly twice during the summer months to retain a balanced shape, using secateurs not shears.
