Looks like my Lovely container grown Bay tree has got the dreaded lurgy but I don't have a clue what it is. As you can see the leaves are very spotted and have started to turn yellow. Bay tree leaves are usually very dark green when they are in a healthy state. My Bay tree suffered from scale last year but I seemed to have eradicated the little horrors by wiping them off with a soapy solution. One of my concerns is that my Bay tree is not getting enough nutrients by being planted in a pot and is becoming susceptible to viruses. However I'm unsure whether it would be a good idea to plant the Bay straight into the garden, especially in its current condition. If anyone has any idea please could you let me know.
