Two mad gnomes and a big garden.
The Veggie Gnome does the edible stuff, the Berry Gnome the berries and taties.
VG, I use dried bay leaves all the time in cooking. Can you use them straight from the tree to cook with, and if so, what is the difference in flavour? I am just curious, because I have been thinking of planting one for quite a while.Gav
Hi Gav! I'd say - go for it! They are lovely plants, easy to maintain, and you can use the leaves fresh from the tree. That's what we do. I think the fresh leaves are more flavoursome and better. But that might be just me.We planted our tree in the backyard where it is in partial shade. We don't water it in summer at all, it does receive a good feed (compost) and mulch nearly every year. But your conditions may vary. It has been in the ground for approx. 8 years and it has only grown to about 1 meter. It's a nice bushy shrub. They can grow much taller, though. We use the leaves regularly in our cooking.
