Medicinal plants can be used fresh or dehydrated; if we want to harvest them to put them aside dehydrated, letís get information regarding the balsamic period of the plant we have chosen, rather when the plant has a higher quantity of active principles. We suggest watering the The Sweet bay every 2-3 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water.

Adversity Sweet bay
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
