Plaited bay...


Plaited bay... (Laurus nobilis)

This was done by my OH many years ago, using three thin straggly bay trees, as you can see the trunk has now fused, as it is a sweet bay it is prone to frost and cold winds, so we have to cover it from the worst of the weather.

That's amazing! What a stunning pot as well! :)) Thanks for putting it on. I think I might have a go with a wisteria DD, if I can find three straggly ones going cheap!
