No roots yet and its been a month and a half. Not really expecting any now.Morning Kev. Happy to see this post. Isn’t file from thr root. Dried and ground? As in it’s not like plucking a few leaves. You have to get to the root?

Well, I am still working on rooting. If its going to root it should start them soon. I am rooting to give away, my plant has gone complete crazy growing! I'll get a picture tomorrow and stick it up. I did some pruning earlier this year and even the base of the plant is starting new shoots.
I wonder why they say to root in the fall at the end of the growing cycle? Thanks Richie, I would have gotten to researching sooner or later, I just always gotta do it my way first.Kevin no problem been thru it myself.Had some nice weather the last few days so,mine is outside getting some fresh air.Found a link on sprouting from stem,you know way more then I.
It grows wild here everywhere. But then again, we got our first freeze in 6 years this last winter. I am thinking young and tender would freeze but some of these trees get monstrous. I Googled and saw pictures of a Sassafras in maybe Ohio that was labeled a Historic State landmark because of its size. They can and do grow into huge trees, I am guessing it helps when you don't try and kill them first though. LOLWonder what temp zones that sassafrase will survive in. Need to look that up.
.... You know me. Monkey see ( Kev ) monkey do (Me).
So the name on the tag says Sweet Bay. This is the back:Why yes it is (good eye). My wife has lots of plants it is just starting to stay warm enough here to move them outside so they are all over the house.
I forgot the actual name of this Bay plant, I will get it tonight but you are correct it is pretty bushy and says it is a slow grower.
Grow it inside and keep it cut back, I understand it is a common Bonsai. So surely it will be fine in a pot inside. Thats is where most all of mine started. don't fear plants, an occasional water and tell the grandbabies to not pull 'em out the pot, the only other problem I don't have.... cats. Thank about it.Thanks that leaves me out, unless I grow one inside. Guess I’ll buy fresh at the grocery store.
