Re: Bay trees (was Where is everyone?)

According to my AHS book, it states that one can sow seeds in containers in  
a cold frame in autumn, or take semi-ripe cuttings in summer.    Mine has 
never bloomed nor set seed that I've seen.  I have never tried to  grow one from a 
cutting.  Perhaps one of the seed companies sells the  seed.

Don't  know about seeds; never saw one bloom, let alone fruit. Asexual   
propagation is probably a more efficient way to go and more options  to  
explore--old wood, new wood, GA treatment, on and on. I also  wonder if  
you could layer it--pin a branch to the ground and cover a  few nodes  
with soil. Layering usually takes a while but often works  on tough-to- 
root plants [e.g. Ficus elastica]. Makes me wonder how it  reproduces  
itself in nature.
