Bay trees already in my local. I picked up some fig trees from them last week, bargain at £12 each :-)

Are these leaves suitable for cooking with? Not all bay trees leaves seem to be.

I would say these are meant for decoration.

I bought the spiral version a couple of weeks ago four £19.99 each and they are fine quality etc.
Mine were Laurus Nobilis which are the ones you can cook with and are commonly sold in garden centres. It does say not to be used for coming on the label though - perhaps they are being overly cautious?
If you want a bay then go for it. I've found that the big garden centres have trees on clearance often where you get a lot of bang for your buck e.g. Homebase 70% off clearance plants.

So they planned to sell this 6+ years ago?

The growers did yeah. How else do you think places can sell established plants?

Can these stay in the pot to live on decking or do they need to be planted?

Iirc they need to be kept away from frost so a life in a pot to be moved indoors when it's winter looks likely. They have only grown about 3ft in 6 years so are quite slow growing.

I know exactly what some rebellious sorts are going to be getting up to when they get one of these home!

I've been nurturing my fig tree now for two years they are really hard to look after. Just had to repot into a larger size and add broken bricks to the bottom. If you plant it in the garden. Plant it in the pot mmmm can't wait for figs they are lush

They are great for cooking, made a meal for my wife with the bay leaves last Monday, got her will yesterday,I'm off now to live in cuba

I read that link as Nhs before I clicked on it. I thought it was going to be how poisonous they were lol.

Thanks for info.

the missus uses them whilst cooking califlower dishes eradicates the smell (quick wash first).

Drove 8miles to my nearest Aldi to buy something similar to the picture and this is not what I found, a 30cm high bay leave tree with about 10 leaves on it, no pot, definitely wasn't 6 years old.

'From 4th June'. The bay tree you found is old stock.
