GEEZ! I've either KILLED or seriously traumatized yet another one thru total NEGLECT!?! Discovered it TOTALLY dry, wilted and pretty much CRISPY in rarely used diningroom. Gave it what I call a "kill it or cure it" trim... down toabout an inch or so from soil. Wood looked a bit green, so hoping for a rebound. Guess on UP side, a big messa fragrant bay leaves is a bit of a good thing??
