Plant care and instructions
Regular watering is required only when the plant is young if you are growing bay leaves on the ground. However, you must check the soil once in a while to see if the surface is dry, especially during the spring and summer. From fall and through the winter, reduce watering. Apply the liquid fertilizer every 15 days from spring to summer. Avoid feeding the plant in winter. As you’re growing it for the leaves, it is recommended to use a fertilizer that is high in nitrogen to favor the growth of lush green foliage. Place containers outdoors in summer in part shade locations. Bring containers indoors before fall frost for overwintering in cool areas with bright light. The size and shape of this plant can easily be controlled by pruning.
