Need some help caring for your Olive tree?
These beautiful Olive trees are from Spain! Our Olive trees can be kept in their current pots for approximatly 2 further years once the tree has been delivered to you. We suggest planting or repotting the Olive tree in late spring, please avoid planting/repotting in colder months. Olive trees depend on a really good drainage system, this means making sure there is plenty of holes in the bottom of the pot, and using the correct soil type (John Innes no 3 / good drainage soil). Water regularly in the summer, at least 3 times a week, and allow the rainy months to water your Olive tree! Although Olive trees are super hardy, we advise using a horticultural fleece in winter months, wrapping only the foliage! This protects the harsh winds from knocking off the leafs! If you have any further questions please feel free to send us an email enquiry and we will do our best to advise!
