Bay Tree Problems


My bay tree has not been looking very good recently and I wondered what I should do.

Then I remembered that TopVeg was running a herb event, so as part of TopVeg’s herb day event last week, I contacted TopVeg via skype for an online consultation.

TopVeg listened to the problems I had with my bay tree;

  • Some leaves are green and have black spots.
  • Some leaves are yellowing with black spots.
  • Some leaves are partially brown or completely brown.
  • Some leaves are dropping off.

I have followed the advice given by TopVeg and hope to see a flourishing bay tree next year.

I was thrilled that TopVeg asked if they could record the online consultation so if you would like to hear the bay tree podcast then click on this link. Bay Tree Podcast.

If you have a vegetable or herb gardening question then contact TopVeg and if you’re feeling adventurous then you can book your online consultation and feature in a TopVeg podcast.

Farmingfriends and TopVeg have collaborated together to write an eBook entitled How To Grow Herbs for Cooking.
