Growing Bay Leaf.
The bay laurel, otherwise known as laurus nobilis, sweet bay or bay tree, is a fragrant evergreen which originated in the Northern Mediterranean. The leaves from the bay tree are used extensively in cooking to flavor soups, stews and an array of different dishes.
In addition, this aromatic herb is known to possess antiseptic and antioxidant properties as well as containing high levels of vitamin A and C, Calcium, Copper, Potassium, Magnesium, Iron, Selenium and Zinc. Given these benefits, it is hardly suprising that growing bay laurel leaves at home for a supply 'on tap' is becoming increasingly popular.
