Laurus Noblis 'Bay Tree' Seeds - 5x Seeds

Sweet bay is a medium sized Laurel that hails from the Mediterranean. It is used primarily as a culinary herb, but historically it has been used medicinally. A component of bouquet garni, a French seasoning blend, bay lends itself well to soups, stews, and sauces. Usually, sweet bay is purchased as a seedling from a nursery, but growing bay tree seeds is also possible, provided the grower has some patience since bay seed germination is a slow process.

Seed sowing process 

When they arrive, soak them in warm water for 24 hours and then plant them immediately or cold store until you're ready to sow.

Fill a seed tray with a layer of moist soilless (coir or peat bricks available in our garden supply section) seed mix.

Spread the seeds out over the surface, keeping them about 2 inches (5 cm.) apart and press them gently into it.

Cover the seeds with a bit more moist soilless mix.

Dampen the medium with a spray bottle. Make sure to just lightly moisten, not saturate the mix.

Place the seed tray in a warm area of around 21 C. that gets up to 8 hours of sun per day.

Keep the seeds moist to slightly on the dry side as they germinate.

Keep an eye on the progress of the seeds and be patient. It can take from 10 days to up to 6 months for the bay seeds to germinate. Transplant the bay seedlings into pots or into the garden proper when leaves begin to appear.
