I'm in zone 5 so some things just don't grow here. I've successfully had rosemary in a pot in my kitchen for the last couple of years. Will bay laurel also grow in a pot, or is it an outdoor plant only?
I have been interested in Bay Laurel trees for a couple of years now. I am also in zone 5. The plants are not common in a neighborhood near you, but not hard to locate on line. The will survive down to almost zero, and grow to 75 feet. A greenhouse enables a 6 foot tall tree in a large container to be happy. I think zone 5 is the limit and a bout of bad weather would kill them(it) unless you have them(it) in a greenhouse. I am not ready to take that gamble on an expensive plant. I will get ready first. I wish you good luck and look forward to your updates.
