Cultural instructions:
  • Remove the plant from the packaging and water if the compost is dry
  • You may want to pot up your plant into a larger pot or you can grow it on for a little while in the pot it has arrived in
  • Use a potting compost
  • Re-pot bay every two years in spring
  • Tease out some of the roots and trim off excess roots if planting it in the same sized container
  • Re-plant in fresh compost
  • Grow the plants in a warm, sunny position that is sheltered from cold, drying winds which can damage the foliage
  • In colder areas where the temperatures fall below -5, (23C) in a greenhouse or conservatory
  • Once or twice during the summer months trim the plant to shape
  • Keep well-watered during the summer months but keep pots on feet so that any excess water can drain away freely
