Bay laurel is hardy in zones 8 to 10. Even though that range goes down to 15 degrees F (-9 C), the tree is frost sensitive at about 20 degrees F or -7 C. So if your climate is that warm in the winter, you should be able to transplant the tree out in the garden. Be sure and mulch well come winter time.
