As an enthusiast for Laurus nobilis, I came to the conclusion that there is nothing much to be fond on the subject on Internet. On the laurel in general yes, but not on the pyramid-shaped one or the bulb on stem, as we know it in Flanders (Belgium).

With this web-site I want to introduce the world to the historical and the current cultivation in the vicinity of Bruges (West Flanders) and later on in East Flanders. I hope that this information, wich will be updated regulary, will be of use to the all-round lover of plants.
