Gardeners in frost-free or light frost areas will find that bay laurel seedlings planted in the ground easily grow into large trees, 38 feet (12 m) and taller; but when kept pruned, it can thrive as a small bush. Bay laurel can also be grown in containers, the size of which limits the ultimate size of the trees.

Monkey and Preston - are those dwarf trees? What kinds of techniques are you using to pack them in so close? Do you have pictures or maps you could share with us? Would love to hear your real-world experiences.
That would be very popular around here.In the heart of Seattle, a public park is planned like no other: an urban food forest that is free for the plucking!
Due to its mild temperatures and routinely wet climate, Seattle is one of the very few cities in the US with a year-round, outdoor growing season. Taking advantage of this vegetation-friendly environment, and a seven acre plot of public land, a community of local planners and advocates are moving forward with plans to build the first, completely free, public food forest in a U.S. city (or perhaps anywhere in the country).
The proposed forest will be planted with hundreds of varieties of edible plants, herbs, berry bushes (such as honeyberries and lingonberries) and fruit trees — including apple, pear, plum and exotics such as pineapple, yuzu citus and guava. And all of it will be available free for the plucking to anyone who happens to walk through the soon-to-be-planted public forest in Seattle’s Beacon Hill neighborhood.
“These statistics rank the current drought as the most severe one-year drought ever for Texas,” Nielsen-Gammon explains. “Never before has so little rain been recorded prior to and during the primary growing season for crops, plants and warm-season grasses.”
