Description

Laurus Nobilis, commonly known as Bay Laurel or Sweet Bay, is an aromatic evergreen shrub or small tree native to the Mediterranean region. It belongs to the family Lauraceae and is highly valued for its culinary uses, ornamental appeal, and historical significance.

The leaves are glossy, dark green, and elongated, with a leathery texture. They are often used as a flavourful herb in cooking and emit a pleasant, aromatic fragrance when crushed.

In addition to its culinary applications, Bay Laurel is a popular choice for ornamental planting. Its attractive foliage and neat growth habit make it suitable as a specimen plant, hedge, or topiary. The plant is often pruned to maintain its desired shape and size, and it can be grown in containers for versatile use on patios or in small gardens.

It’s worth noting that while Bay Laurel is generally considered safe for culinary use, the leaves can be tough and should be removed before consuming. They are commonly used in soups, stews, sauces, and as a seasoning for various dishes. However, the plant’s berries and other parts contain compounds that are toxic if ingested in large quantities, so they should be avoided.
