Bay Laurel is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely little plant I bought the Bay leaf plant because the Bay leaf or Laurel is part of my Spanish culture. The Laurel that I received from Burpee is growing beautifully in its ceramic pot. I followed the instructions that came with the plant and my lovely is sprouting wonderfully. I have used one or two of it's leaves for cooking and they have delicious flavor. Please note that this is a slow growing plant. I want to let it truly fill out before harvesting too much. I am receiving much joy in watching my Laurel grow.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good company and decent plant. My Bay hasn't grown since a received it. I like Burpee because it has good products and most of them grow well but my Bay isn't growing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BAY TREE - NICE PLANT I ordered this tree in the late spring as an addition to my perennial herbs. First, the tree arrived in fine condition with good, clear instructions for planting with optional treatments well explained. Secondly, the tree is thriving and I anticipate having a lifetime supply of bay leaves for my cooking.
