In ancient mythology this Bay is a sacred tree which protects the home by which it grows and symbolises strength and courage.
This beautifully wrapped Bay tree will happily thrive in any garden and looks fabulous in an outdoor flower pot on a balcony, terrace or doorstep.
A gift card with your personal message also includes the story of the Bay tree's ancient symbolism and a full care guide. You can add an engraved brass plaque (see images) inscribed with your message so this special gift is always remembered.
All our trees are nurtured here, in The Present Tree's gardens where we never use harmful chemicals, just an organic blend that's wonderful for you, your tree, our wildlife and the planet. When you place your order a beautiful Bay tree will be freshly selected by our devoted gardeners before being carefully wrapped and placed in its luxury parcel.
This evergreen Bay tree (ILaurus nobilis) is also stunning when clipped into a formal shape using topiary. The dense foliage is wonderful for garden birds to safely make their nests in summer and its spring blossoms are loved by our honey bees.
Every Bay tree is growing in an organic pot filled with top-notch compost, so no green fingers are required, just add natural daylight and water. We have added special nutrients to your tree’s compost to create the perfect balance of nourishment. This organic goodness will release into the soil for several months to ensure your tree continues to flourish.
All The Present Tree's products and packaging are 100% biodegradable, compostable, reusable or recyclable.
Your parcel travels in a clear eco bag so the couriers and recipients are aware a living tree is inside and it must be opened as soon as possible.
Your Bay tree will happily grow in its organic pot for the next few weeks, just place it in a sheltered spot in the garden, even in chilly weather. Plant your tree, still in its organic pot so the roots are not disturbed, in a large flower pot (one with holes in the bottom for drainage) or in a sunny spot in the garden.
The luxury parcel is 55cm high and 15cm diameter. The total height of this Bay tree is 45-55cm, it is quite happy to be clipped in early spring and may reach a height of 2 metres in 10 years, if allowed to grow naturally.
