bay tree is looking sick, several years old, has been in large tub for three years. does it need special feeding?



Is it potbound? Turn it out and check the rootball, if its all solid roots, then it needs a bigger pot.

Hi Zappa like Bamboo said they could be pot bound , but as for feeding I have two plus an olive tree in pots and I feed them with a seaweed fertiliser which seems to work, Roy.

I. Have a bay tree in a large pot which appeared to be suffering a couple of years ago. I watered it with my home made comfrey 'juice' and it recovered. But if it is pot bound it will need re-potting.
