Bay trees in sunny position this summer

Hi there,

Just seeking some advice re my bay trees - they are in a really hot and snny position at the front of our house in pots with moisture control compost and have been thriving all summer. A day or to ago I noticed the leaves starting to crinkle and a few browny coloured leaves. I have been watering well every night since thec weather has been warm and use plant food fortnightly. Just wanted to know if im going wrong? 

Thanks, Justine

    Bay trees do not like to be wet. We have one 1/2 standard bay in a pot which is doing OK in the sun and we rarely give it any water & even when we do we are very sparing. Watering every day is a clue to the problem + I don't think you need to give plant feed anywhere near that regularly (if at all)

    PS, the pot is 12" (30cms) dia, terracotta
