Standard Bay Trees With Cold Damage

Anonymous added on April 3, 2011 | Answered

I have two standard bay trees that are in pots against a wall. The recent cold weather seems to have killed the leaves, which are brown and dry. Have I lost them, or is there anything I can do to save them? I have had them a year.

They can recover, if the stems are alive. The brown leaves will fall off. Then new leaves will grow back. Because bay trees grow slowly, this may take some time. This article will help you determine if the stems are still alive:
