Flora of Cornwall (1999)

The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Flora of Cornwall (1999), which was a Tetrad Atlas (the maps had 2km square dots or Tetrads). The map on this web page depicts the plant's distribution at the 1km square scale and shows the records made pre-2000 which were used in the 1999 Flora and those made since.

Laurus nobilis - Bay

Bay is an established garden escape at various localities. It has been reported as self-sown from Gulval churchyard (SW43V, 1994, D.T.Holyoak), on the edge of Phillack Towans (SW53U, 1993, D.T.Holyoak) and from mine waste at United Mines (SW74K, 1977, L.J.Margetts). Bay has been found in woodland, on hedges, waste ground, stream banks and in a disused quarry.
