Here is a helpful video on bay leaves. This guy gives so much information on the plant. I didn't learning that it the plant can't take the cold and the wind at the same time. Makes think about were I'm going to plant it. I'm thinking if I plant it be the inside the gate. I also thinking maybe I will put my long green house over them for the winter. The hardest part of doing that would be remembering to water them in the winter.
