At the foot of my bay tree there are 2 small bays growing. I don’t suppose there’s any chance of me digging them up to acquire 2 more plant. And thanks B, you suggested me clicking on ‘open’ but I didn’t have this so I clicked on ‘done’. Job solved.




If the bits have roots then you can dig them up and repot them. Bay trees do sucker rather frequently.

Thanks O, they were attached to the big tree last time, however and I failed. Shall have a go though.

Yeah, most likely attached to the main trunk. Mine does this all the time. I have to keep cutting them away.

Glad you got the problem solved Hank. I have an older computer (still works like a charm).

It was all thanks to you buddy, I hadn’t a clue

Would cutting a nick on the sucker allow new roots to grow on the sucker so it could be successfully severed from the main plant? I'm thinking of how one would layer rhododendrons to increase the stock.

Definitely going to try that SG.

Do let us know if it works Hank.

Will do SG but it will be a while as the garden in like a quagmire.
