Hi all i have had this plant for 2 Summers Now , it was in a Bag of soil my Grand kid was plantin orange seeds and they did not come up so i put soil from pot back in Soil Bag a Few weeks later i looked in Bag to see a Very Pale white Shoot due to no or very very little light .

I rescued it and this is it a 2 summers later .

It was a Bag of Multipurpose soil so i Dont know if it is a Orange Tree , Even if not i will keep it just for its resilience .

Should i put it in ground or re-pot , and i dont know what that is growing out side .

PLANT GROWING OUT OF BOTTOM OF THE POT
I think it looks like one of the weedy willows.

Laurus nobilis, common name bay have very very glossy leaves that are evergreen.

The leaves, emerging from the base of the pot, look as if they belong to a decidous plant.

Just to clarify my post above, I am only talking about the weed growing out of the bottom of the pot. If the leaves all drop off in the autumn, then it cannot be a Bay tree.. Laurus nobilis!

If it's an Orange tree, you'll have to stick it inside for the winter.

I'm certainly no expert but I'd put it outside in its pot in May and bring it back indoors at the end of September.

Maybe someone else will confirm if that's correct or not.

I think the responses to Finnagen and the whole structure of the thread sets a new standard in Chinese Whispering. Would yiz all ever go back and read the whole thread from the top to the bottom.

The guy wants to know if the plant IN the pot is an ORANGE.
He did not ask for anything more than that.
He also wants to know WHAT is growing out from the outside of the pot.

The yoke IN the pot MAY be an orange, Finnagen. But I don't think it is. An orange leaf is shiny and dark green in front and the back is considerably lighter green and not shiny. But an orange leaf has a very special feature which I can't see in any of the photos. At the stem end, the leaf has a little 'waist'. Mostly orange leaves are shorter than your long finger. Mostly also orange leaves combine alternate AND opposite leaf patterns on any one branch.

BAY leaves are always alternate and the leaves are usually longer than your long finger. If you can provide me with a photo of two leaves one frontways and one backways, I'll confirm what you have.

Oh! BTW, the thing growing out of the pot is a bog plant found all over Ireland. I think it's called an osier but I'm not sure about that.

walltoall, The question was...

"Is this Orange tree and whats that Growing out Side"

After tippben
said "the one at the bottom of the pot is a bay tree"
I wanted to make it clear that it is not a bay tree.. it looks like a weedy willow tree.
Hope this clarifies the chinese whispers!!!
