Bay Tree on its last legs
Here's a pic of a bay tree I bought from a houseplant store a couple of months ago. I wanted a plant for my bedroom which is normally quite dim and when the heater is on, it can get quite warm. I'm a total novice when it comes to any form of gardening and so I purchased this on the advice of the shop assistant. I was advised that this would be a hardy plant and would be fine in my room with a weekly watering in the shower as to get water on the leaves. For the first few weeks I followed this advice and kept the plant at the other side of the room from the window however the leaves began to discolour and shrivel, I suspected this may have been because the room was getting quite warm and drying out the plant. I stopped using the heater and when the plant didn't recover I began to water the plant every couple of days and moved it close to the window. Does anyone know if it is beyond repair and what if anything I can do to correct this? Some of the leaves are looking relatively normal, if I was to cut off the 'bad' stems is there a chance it could recover? Cheers! Any help would be very much appreciated.
