Caring

Olive trees like a warm and sunny position. The root system can be kept fairly damp, but must have good drainage. Curling leaves indicate that the plant is too wet. Especially larger specimens can tolerate frosts to -5 degrees Celcius; at lower temperatures, cover the plant with protective cloth. If the olive tree is to be grown in a container, ensure good drainage; this allows it to stay more frost-free during the winter. During the March to September growth phase, apply a small amount of fertiliser, it is better to add too little than too much. Prune early in the Spring to maintain a nice shape as well as to stimulate growth.
