Noting: I'm in Washington (NW) and my hardiness zone is 7b.
I have a bay tree that I bought in spring that is now in a 8 or 10" container. I know bay trees are hardy here when planted into the ground but I'm unsure about in containers. I have a couple of options and would like some opinions on which might be "best."
The deck - covered, faces south, receives a large amount of wind. I do have a few big containers I could put in front as a wind barrier.
The porch - covered, faces north, somewhat open to the west, receives some wind but is far more protected.
At the bottom of the stairs - covered, faces south, no wind.
Unheated bedroom. Faces north. Stays around 50.
Storage closet on deck. Unheated, no lighting, cement floor.
So what do you think?
BTW, little Bay has his own blankey. He's been using it since the temps started getting cold at night. Going to buy a paper pot for insulation.
