All dimensions are measured from the bottom of the stem to the top of the leaf canopy.

We can increase the height by up to 6 inches depending on the planter you chose.
Artificial Bay Tree
This replica bay laurel tree is our most popular artificial topiary tree due to its classic yet contemporary look which lends itself well to so many styles and spaces. The faux bay tree foliage has a dense covering with beautifully lush green leaves. The foliage is darker with more Emerald tones towards the centre of the tree which emulates the older and more mature foliage. At the tips the foliage is lighter and lusher which is to replicate the new growth . To ensure this tree is Botanically accurate the foliage even has a vein pattern running through the leaf. The stem itself is also replica to ensure it is robust enough to withstand all of the outdoor elements. You would not know this is a replica stem as it has been made from a cast taken from a living bay stem with all the details of real wood.
These artificial Bay trees are premium quality made using top quality silks and plastic to ensure their longevity. Our fake bay trees are visually pleasing and also feel real to touch. They have a botanically accurate leaf structure along with a perfectly moulded and hand painted stem. This stem is also synthetic which means it is hardy to the outdoor elements and prevents the tree from rotting as a wooden stem would. These fake bay trees are UV stable which means they are protected against rapid fading. They hold a one year UV guarantee. Please note we have recently changed our bay trees in order to enhance the quality. If you need your bay tre to match previous orders (pre-Spring 2017) get in touch and we will see if we can arrange this for you.
In classical times, the Greeks dedicated the bay tree to Apollo, the god of medicine, as it was considered to increase happiness and health.
Potting Up Your Item
Have you chosen your planter? If you would like advice on how to plant your chosen product at home please contact us and we will be happy to advise where possible. Alternatively, why not let us plant up for you! Once you have selected you planter from our range, our experts in the workshop will take considerable care in ensuring the finished product is of the highest standard for you. Upon delivery the last task that will be required by yourself is to add the authentic stone topping (instructions will be included).
Even though the plant is artificial, should you choose to plant it up at home into your own planter, we would suggest that it still has plenty of drainage to ensure the stem isn't sat in water over a period of time.
Weighing Down Potted Items
Upon delivery of your item/s the main planter will be separate to the potted product. All that is required is for you to choose where the planter is to go and to place the inner sheath (that you plant/tree is potted in) into the main planter. If you are planning to put your purchase outside, we would highly recommend weighting the base with sand, gravel, soil, bricks etc, to prevent the structure being moved or blown over in the wind.
