Bay Leaf 4.5" Specialty Herb
Light: Herbs require a bright, sunny location. They need at least 6 hours of sunlight per day. Place plants as close as possible to your brightest window. Avoid setting them in the center of a room or near a window with a northern exposure, neither of which will offer enough light.
Water: Water when soil is dry to the touch. You'll be surprised by how little water it takes to sustain a small herb. Keep soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. A small watering can or a drizzle under the sink will suffice. If the leaves begin to wilt or turn yellow, scale back on your watering.
Soil: Well-draining potting soil mix is needed.
Fertilizer: Fertilize every two weeks with Evolve Organic Tomato Plant Fertilizer (3-2-2).
Harvest: Harvest a few sprigs with kitchen shears or by pinching leaves off with your fingers. Bonus: Regular cutbacks encourage new growth! Avoid removing more than a quarter of the plant at a time, which will cause distress and could even kill the plant.
