I am moving from a house with a garden (Cambridge) to a flat in Edinburgh, and I want to take my two 6 ft bay trees with me, ideally I want to put them in the (very light) living room and leave them there the entire year. From reading gardening QAs, I suspect the winters might be the biggest problem as they don't want to be too warm in winter, right? But this flat will not be heated a lot, or I can put them in an unheated room. Do you think they will survive, or do I have to give them away?
I am very attached to them, I have had them for a long while and they are large and beautiful, with big trunks. One is in a pot (watered every day in summer), the other one (which is doing even better) is in the soil but would be moved to a pot when I move out.
