Planting and care

Spacing-Daylily plants come in a wide range of sizes, but here are some general guidelines to follow: Small Flower & Miniatures: 16" to 24" Large Flowers: 18" to 30" For a closed bed or border: 12" to 18"

Caring for True Cinnamon

  • Feed a good organic fertilizer to your tree twice a year, once in the spring and once in the summer.Make sure the fertilizer you choose is good for both indoor and outdoor plants.
  • Pruning is the most important thing for your bay leaf tree for maintaining its shape and size. You need to keep its height, width, and shape pruned. Remember, it wants to become a 30-60 foot tree!
  • You need to prune twice a year, once in the early spring and once in the late summer. In the spring, besides regular pruning, you need to look at the base of the tree for additional shoots/stems. If you see any, you will need to prune them off and leave just the original trunk.
  • Make sure to water your plant regularly, especially in the summer. While bay trees do not want to be soggy, they will become stressed if they do not receive enough water.
  • Check your bay leaf tree regularly for rusting, mottling, mold, leaf spots, and pests.

Harvesting

You can start to harvest bay once the plant is a couple of years old. The leaves should be dried before use, as fresh bay is bitter. The best wait time is around 48 to 72 hours from the time you pick a leaf.
I know you get long-dried bay leaves at the store, but the freshly dried leaves have better, deeper flavor.
