I read the information on that bay leaf tree but it didn't say anything about climates, the wife buys several hundred dollars worth of plants every year that have to be thrown out in the fall and replaced in the spring because of the extreme cold here in Minnesota. Will the bay leaf tree servive Minnesota winter?
You would have to grow it as a container plant so you could save it from your weather. A hard freezer would do it in. Note mine too is in a container.
