So ....... he finally got here today. Been waiting a couple a months. They called it a bare root, but its about 2 feet tall and covered with new growth. Ok, I know the tables dirty, but........ Look at that bad boy! You might also note the pot full of sprouts behind it. AND the empty pot next to it. Pffft..... supposed to be onion starters. I have a 18" terra cotta with a clay dish sitting on some industrial pot rollers outside for its new home for a few years. Lady friends asked me why I didn't have one. She swears by using fresh not dried bay leaves cooking. Besides there is enough leaves on this plant to pay for itself now. How hard can it be, it can get to 40 feet, but I would probably do some pruning. This is where it came from and hopefully will look like in time. http://www.monticelloshop.org/606565.html I also went ahead and got in two pot set ups and thinking about maybe trying to make a sassafras Bonsai. I could get all my file from it. Throw out some Thyme (which BTW is a mosquito deterrent) I have rosemary in a pot. That leaves only some garlic and some green onions! I will have some onions planted this year too. LOL all this and never even started the tractor....LOL I ain't getting anymore hens or pigs.... you can just forget that!
