When to pick bay leaves?
I know this is an odd question and I guess the obvious answer is 'anytime' but I had one gardening source mention that the leaves are best before the tree flowers. I have 4 bay trees, 2 in bloom and the other two on the way. Also, can I use the leaves fresh or is dry better?

Fresh, as you want them.
Flower? Mine's never flowered.

Piuck them any time, including right through the winter, fresh is always better tho if I have to prune mine, I always dry the leaves also.TonyF, Dordogne 24220

Mine is flowering now. Tiny little cream fluffy things. Rather nice. Doesn't stop me using the leaves though.Whoever plants a garden believes in the future.
