Are they hardy enough to be outside all year or will you have to bring them in over the winter? Do you use the leaves for cooking?

Haha ...what a treat...! just for future reference, Youngdaisy...if a recipe says add a Bay Leaf that's what they're talking about!! I love bargains ...especially when they turn out to be smashing!! Great idea you had...they look quite healthy..so you're on the right road! Cheers!

I love the use of colour in this photograph. It makes for a grand entrance, one you cannot miss! They grow quite quickly from small plants too, I bought 2 at my local herb centre and pinched out the tops which makes them bushy in no time at all. Thanks for sharing with us....:-)
