I've grown Bay Laurel for several years--have 2 plants that I overwinter indoors. Earlier this year, one of my Master Gardener colleagues was discussing doing propagation of bay by cuttings. So, we consulted with our propagation expert, and tonight we met to take bay laurel cuttings. I know they can take a while to germinate, so it will be a while til we know if we were successful. It was interesting to learn the difference between soft, semi-soft, and hardwood cuttings and the different techniques.

Has anyone here propagated bay laurel by either cuttings or seed?

My tree 20 ft tall is outside. Frost down to 18 F.dosent bother it. Never planted seed. They plant themselfs and come up as they please !
I leaned a small branch over and burried it half way into a small hole and covered it. Just for kicks.to see if it would root. And ! It sure did 😎.
So if you cant do that.i would say. air layer it.if you wanted faster results. Shrug! Planting the seeds.and doing cuttings sounds fun though. Have fun.Enjoy.and Experiment. I like to experiment 😎🙊🙉🙈 Sticking tongue out I tip my hat to you.
