The Q&A Archives: Bay laurel or sweet bay tree

Questioner's Location: Boston, MA

Question: I just had my local flower shop recommend and a deliver a sweet bay tree to my apartment to replace a different tree from their shop that failed. The tree is from Monrovia. The tree will recieve little to no indirect sunlight. I read about this tree online and it seems that these trees require much light. I was also curious as to the range in cost that a 5 foot specimen would sell for in a retail store. Thank you so much for your time

Answer: A bay tree would need ample bright light to stay healthy indoors, so if you do not have a spot like that you may have a problem. (Most plants in fact need ample light be it direct or indirect, to stay healthy.) Monrovia is a wholesale only nursery and does not sell retail. Its products are sold by independent retailers and they all carry individual selections and pricing is per the store. So I have no price reference to give you. You might check with some retailers in your area and see what the local market price would be. I'm sorry I can't be more encouraging.
