Olive Trees are surprisingly hardy in our unpredictable weather and mature trees need very little care. If you are buying a young tree just a few tips to nurture whilst it develops.
1. They are ideal to keep in pots and easier to care for at this stage
2. Don't let the soil dry out - keep moist but at the same time don't allow the roots to become waterlogged. Use a pot stand to ensure they don't sit around in standing water.
3. Feed every 6 months or so - (most plant food can just be added to the water - easy!)
4. Once established your tree will survive our winter but at the early stages you might want to take extra care. You could bring indoors or keep sheltered in a greenhouse. Alternatively cover the pot with a hessian cover or similar.
Enjoy your tree - the first few months if early Summer should see a growth spurt before it slows down. Fruit is expected after 2-3 years!
