This poor tortured bay tree. We have one that is in its 20's and going strong. Then there is this one that has had scale every year and we have cleaned every leaf and moved it outside to do its thing. We didn't get it out as soon as I would have like this year. It is making a big comeback at the moment. Saving its leaves from being composted! Just like that fig we planted in the ground earlier! It is getting it together! I will leave you with a post I did on the bay laurel from 2009 when it was the herb of the year. Bay is a wonderful plant to grow, really it is! Cooler weather. Fall weather before fall. Hope you are having a great day! Talk to you later.
