SHOP MORE > SOIL & PLANTING MEDIA
- This tree is not too particular about soil.
- Well-draining soil is important; plant your bay tree at the same depth as it was planted in its original pot.
SHOP MORE > FERTILIZER
- Plants in containers need some supplemental fertilizer.
- Feed container-grown bay in the spring and maybe again mid-summer, with a balanced organic fertilizer like fish emulsion and kelp.
- If you grow your bay tree indoors, keep it near a sunny window for the winter.
- Outdoor plants require full sun to partial shade. In areas with hot, dry summers, some afternoon shade is ideal.
- Bay roots are very shallow and frequent watering may be necessary during dry spells.
- Water it regularly but always allows the soil to dry out between waterings, so the roots don’t rot.
