I have had what I thought was a bay laurel bush planted about 5 years ago and flourishing in my herb garden. I do not have the original tag and am now worried that it may be poisones.
I use it all the time in soups ect. It smells like bay leaves, must be bay leaves, right? In the time I've had it there has never been any blooms of any sort. Help? Am I putting poisones leaves in my soup?

If you are concerned, you could check with your county extension agent. If you planted it in your herb garden, though, you would think that it is bay laurel, wouldn't you? Why would you plant something delicious and aromatic in your herb garden that was poisonous? Spice Islands SELLS California Bay as an alternative to bay laurel.
