Bay Tree Disease/Bug problem

Question from Hans Schumann


Almost all leaves of my large Bay Tree are strangely curled (see attached picture). When I open the curls, there is liquid and a white powder inside. Could it be eggs of an insect? Any advice how to fight this?

My poor Bay Tree

Question from Megan Fielding

I have a Laurus Noblis planted in my garden from a pot last summer. The harsh show this winter has not been kind and appears to have all but killed it. I have trimmed it but some of the shoots are 'wooden' whilst some others seem 'bendy' most of the leaves are brown with lass than half a dozen green left. Should i perservere and is there anything i can do to help it?

Bay tree

Comment from Rosemary Krull

The leaves on my bay tree (plant approx 4 ft) are turning light yellow from dark green. What would cause this? I bought this a month ago and is kept outside - not too much sun, not too much shade. Any answers gratefully received to this beginner gardener!

Bay laurel

Comment from Sue Tallents

Frost has killed this down to the ground in my Cotswold garden for the last two winters. However last summer it sent up a new shoot so it was worth waiting before replacing it.
