Laurel is an evergreen plant whose height reaches up to 10m. It has whitish flowers in spring and leathery sick leaves.
Laurel has significant watering requirements in order to have good growth and flowering. After transplanting the laurel, small and frequent waterings will be required for it to take root better. We water 2-3 times a week in the first year of cultivation of the bay leaf and then we dilute the waterings. Specifically, during the spring period it is enough to water the laurel once a week and twice a week during the summer months. If it is left without water during the summer, it dries out the edges of its leaves.
Laurel is pruned in early spring. We remove the old and weak shoots of the laurel and trim those that escape from the general shape of the plant. For weak or aged laurel plants, we can also do deeper renewal pruning by removing 1/3 of the height of the shoots to improve their growth.
