I potted two bay trees at the end of last summer. Over the winter all the leafs have turned brown (see photo).
I potted the trees with good drainage and only watered them twice as the rain did that job for me. I don’t think I underwater them as moss growing on the top of the soil never dried out and looked green throughout the winter.
The trees are facing north and shaded by the house and the winter was very cold but the trees were not exposed to the wind.
Will green leaves grow again or should I plant new trees?
If the trees can be saved should I remove the brown leaves and should add feed?
How do I prevent this from happening next winter?
