Flowers of Laurus nobilis (Bay Tree) (Laurus nobilis (Sweet bay))

The little conical Bay Tree Ian bought me for Xmas is in flower...I'm hoping to save the seeds to try to grow my own.........

My bay tree is out the front in a pot. It's survived the cold spell undaunted and is covered in flower buds, but it's usually March before they flower here. Lovely flowers though aren't they and i love growing all my own herbs. My favourite is borage - can't beat it in a glass of pimms and the bees love the flowers too!

Hi Karen.....my Bay tree was a chrissy pres so I've kept it by the kitchen door as I didn't want the very low temps to get it,,,I was so surprised to see it in flower...:o) Like you I love herbs...we used to have borage growing wild all over the terraces in Spain...a beautiful herb, but very prickly...Lol! I love golden oregano which seems to seed itself in all the cracks in the pavement...:o)

Yes Janey, but gosh you get the proper aromas abroad! I remember being stopped dead in my tracks by the smell of some wild oregano growing around the toliet block of a campsite at Lake Garda in Italy! Here you have to touch them to get any perfume I find, it never gets warm enough for them to start perfuming the air!
