Bay Leaf Culinary Herb: A Flavorful Essential

Culinary Purposes:

The Bay Leaf Culinary Herb (Laurus nobilis) is a must-have in the kitchen, adding a subtle, earthy flavor to soups, stews, sauces, and marinades. These aromatic leaves are commonly used in Mediterranean and French cuisine to enhance the taste of dishes like bouillabaisse, tomato sauce, and roasted meats. While the leaves themselves are not consumed, they impart a rich, herbal essence that infuses the food during cooking.

Medical Purposes:

No Known Medical Purposes

What to Know About the Plant:

The Bay Leaf Culinary Herb is an evergreen shrub with dark green, glossy leaves that are leathery in texture. These leaves are elliptical in shape and emit a warm, spicy aroma when crushed. The plant can grow up to 30 feet tall in ideal conditions, but is commonly kept pruned to a more manageable size for culinary use. Bay Leaf plants thrive in full sun to partial shade and prefer well-draining soil with regular watering.

Enhancing Your Fruitscape™:

Integrating the Bay Leaf Culinary Herb into your fruitscape design offers a unique blend of functionality and aesthetics. Pairing this herb with fruit trees like citrus (lemon, orange), fig, or apple can provide a harmonious contrast of flavors in your garden. Additionally, mixing in berry plants such as raspberries or blueberries can introduce pops of color and texture to complement the Bay Leaf’s deep green foliage. Other herbs like rosemary, thyme, and sage can also be planted alongside the Bay Leaf for a fragrant and cohesive herb garden. Whether planted in the ground or in containers, the Bay Leaf Culinary Herb adds a touch of culinary sophistication to any landscape.

Planting & Care
Fruitscaping with Herbs & Veggies

Every good kitchen garden needs to have an herb section. A walk through a garden planted with herbs is truly a sensual experience. Their beautifully textured leaves invite you to stop and touch them, and then reward you with a delightful array of heavenly scents. Herbs can serve many functions in the edible landscape, creepers like oregano, mints and thyme make great ground cover. Low growers like sage, chives and perennial onions are good for edging flower beds and will help in insect control. Taller evergreens like rosemary are wonderful used as low hedges or for planting around the foundation of houses. Herbs also lend themselves well to being grown in containers. Tuck a few pots close to the kitchen so they’ll be handy when you need them.

Growing your own herbs is well worth the effort. The quality and flavor of fresh picked herbs is so much better than the dried products you find in the grocery store. Our climate makes it possible to grow a very wide range of herbs. The hot humid summer are perfect for herbs like basil, Thai ginger and tea camellias. Try the more Mediterranean herbs like lavender,  sage and Thyme in the winter time, they love the cool and are less apt to succumb to fungus.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
