There are all kinds of plant materials that can be potted and placed on your porch or patio areas.  In this post we would like to focus on Bay Leaf or Bay Laurel plants.

If you have ever followed a receipt for a hearty stew or soup you will see them tell you to add a large bay leaf.  It adds a robust flavor and unique seasoning.  So lets' talk about the basics of potting the plant up and growing these beautiful leaves.

Start by selecting a large garden container. Even thought it's a slow growing plant it can reach heights of 59 feet if all conditions are right.  Of course a container potted plant will not get this high but keep it pruned to around 6 feet tall.  Not only will it be more appealing but you can move the pot into the garage or shed when the weather gets colder.

Make sure the planter has a drain hole.  Bay leaf plants are tolerant to most soil types but they will not tolerate soil that doesn't drain well.  The plant grows best in full sun to partial shade so place the selected pot where you want it before you pot the plant.

Bay leaf plants have small yellow flowers in spring which turn into berries in the fall.  They are lush with leaves a green green with a yellow vein. Flat broad leaves help to fill in the planter so you will have a great addition to your landscape or patio area.
